Deputy policy director Jordan Posamentier is quoted in The Atlantic on implications and recommendations for suburban districts serving increasingly diverse student populations.
Jordan Posamentier is deputy policy director at the Center on Reinventing Public Education, where he develops K–12 public education policy and the portfolio strategy with cities across the nation. His focus is on city education strategies that emphasize continuous improvement and how states can help catalyze those strategies. Most recently, he co-authored Suburban Schools: The Unrecognized Frontier in Public Education, a paper reviewing the demands facing suburban schools as a result of rapidly changing demographics. He previously worked as the Director of Legislative Analysis at StudentsFirst, as Legislative Counsel to the California Judges Association, and as a California litigator. Earlier, he taught in two low-resource elementary schools in Queens, New York, as a member of the NYC Teaching Fellows program and AmeriCorps. Jordan earned his JD from the University of Houston Law Center, his MS in Education from Queens College (CCNY), and his BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic. He is a licensed attorney in the state of California.
