Jennifer Jennings, '00,  is Assistant Professor of Sociology at New York University. Her research attempts to understand the effects of a variety of educational policies - for example, accountability policies, teacher evaluation systems, and school choice policies - on racial, socioeconomic, and gender inequality in educational outcomes. In addition, she studies the longer-term impacts of high schools on outcomes beyond test scores such as college matriculation, college graduation, and earnings.

"The training that TPP provided has had a huge impact on everything I’ve done since leaving Princeton: what I've chosen to study, what I see as important and value in education, and how I've approached teaching college students. TPP is the most special program Princeton has to offer, and I know my life was forever changed because I had the opportunity to be part of it."
