Terry M. Moe is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, a member of the Institution's Koret Task Force on K–12 education, and the William Bennett Munro Professor of political science at Stanford University.
Moe has written extensively on the politics and reform of American education. In his new book, Special Interest: Teachers Unions and America’s Public Schools (2011), he provides the first comprehensive study of America’s teachers unions: exploring their historical rise to power, the organizational foundations of that power, the ways it is exercised in collective bargaining and politics, and its consequences for the nation’s public schools.
His seminal book with John E. Chubb, Politics, Markets, and America's Schools, is among the most influential and controversial works on education to be published during the last two decades—showing how politics shapes and undermines the public schools and arguing the value of school choice. In Liberating Learning: Technology, Politics, and the Future of America (2009), Moe and John E. Chubb map out a dynamic vision of the nation's educational future, showing how the ideas and innovations of information technology will ultimately transform the public schools to the benefit of the nation and its children.

In addition to his positions at Stanford and Hoover, Moe has served as a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute in Washington, DC.
