UCD Economics Alumn Matthew Larsen's research covered in NYT

Joint work by Douglas Harris of Tulane University and Matt Larsen, UCD Economics Alumn and Assistant Professor of Economics at Lafayette College, appeared in a New York Times article on the remarkable turnaround in school outcomes in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.

Joint work by Douglas Harris of Tulane University and Matt Larsen, UCD Economics Alumn and Assistant Professor of Economics at Lafayette College, appeared in a New York Times article on the remarkable turnaround in school outcomes in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. David Leonhardt writes, "In most of Louisiana, the share of 12th graders going directly to college has fallen in recent years, probably because of budget cuts to higher education. In New Orleans, Harris and Larsen report, the share has jumped to 32.8 percent, from 22.5 percent before Katrina."
