Erica Harrison is excited to be a member of CDF's Education Policy team this summer. Her projects include researching state and local school district’s delivery of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I funds to schools and students, tracking related legislation, and evaluating equity and accountability priorities as Congress considers reauthorizing the law.

Erica is a native of Athens, Ga., and an alumna of Hampton University. Erica will finish her final year of a dual degree law and policy program at Harvard Law School and Harvard Kennedy School of Government in May 2012. Her studies are focused on the nexus of education, politics, and legal structures that shape community opportunities. Prior to graduate study, Erica taught first grade in Atlanta as a Teach For America corps member.
