- A number of people have been instrumental in bringing this report to fruition.
I am first of all grateful to Patrick Callan, Joni Finney and William Doyle of the
National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. In this and other projects
we have done together, I have enormously appreciated their support, wisdom, and spirit
As always, I have relied heavily on the support and insights of my colleagues
at Public Agenda, including Deborah Wadsworth, Jean Johnson, and Margaret Dunning.
I am particularly grateful to Public Agenda's research staff, Steve Farkas, Ann
Duffett, Stephen Immerwahr, and Joanna McHugh, whose keen analysis and attention
to detail I could not have done without.
