Ashley Schobert (Law and Brookings Mountain West) recently wrote a report with Brookings Senior Fellow Richard Reeves titled "Elite or Elitist? Lessons for Colleges from Selective High Schools." In the report, the pair present data that show how selective high schools are racially unrepresentative of the districts they are located in, and discuss past and future reform.
Schobert currently is completing a prestigious internship for the Future of the Middle Class Initiative at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. Chosen as an Outstanding Graduate for commencement in May, she received a bachelor of business administration degree in economics and a bachelor of arts degree in political science while at the same time completing two minors, one in Brookings Public Policy and another in Spanish. This fall she will begin pursuing a law degree at the William S. Boyd School of Law.
