Liberating Learning

John E. Chubb, a distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and a member of Hoover’s Koret Task Force on K–12 Education, is the president of the National Association of Independent Schools. He served as the interim CEO of Education Sector, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization. He was a founder of EdisonLearning, a company that for nearly twenty years has partnered with public school districts and charter school boards nationwide to provide innovative schools and education programs with a focus on disadvantaged students.

He previously served as a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and faculty member at Stanford University. He has also served as an adviser, consultant, and speaker for the White House and for many state governments, public and private school systems, and nonprofit organizations.

Chubb’s most recent book is The Best Teachers in the World: Why We Don’t Have Them and How We Could (Hoover Institution Press 2012). He is the author of several other books, including Liberating Learning and Politics, Markets, and America’s Schools, both coauthored with Hoover Institution senior fellow and fellow K–12 Education Task Force member Terry M. Moe, and Learning from No Child Left Behind. Chubb also edited Within Our Reach: How America Can Educate Every Child, an assessment by the Koret Task Force. His book Politics, Markets, and America’s Schools, which analyzes five hundred public and private high schools using data gathered from more than twenty thousand students, teachers, and principals, argues that free-market principles should become part of the American education system.

Articles written by Chubb have appeared in the Brookings Review, American Political Science Review, Public Interest, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, and other publications.

Chubb also coedited Can the Government Govern? with Hoover Institution distinguished visiting fellow and fellow K–12 Education Task Force member Paul E. Peterson.

Chubb holds a PhD from the University of Minnesota and an AB summa cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, both in political science.
