Chester E. Finn, Jr. wonders how it is possible that Brookings is allowing Russ Whitehurst to leave his position as the head of the Brown Center on Education Policy. His tenure at Brookings has “left a considerable legacy, establishing it as a font of high-quality, policy-relevant research that is objective and rigorous, yet also leads to clear, actionable conclusions,” Finn writes.
