Will Skillman Fellow in Education Policy
Lindsey Burke researches and writes on federal and state education issues as the Will Skillman fellow in education policy at The Heritage Foundation, where she devotes her time and research to two critical areas of education policy — reducing federal intervention in education at all levels and empowering families with education choice. Burke has spoken on education reform issues across the country and internationally, and her commentary, research and op-eds have appeared in various newspapers and magazines. She has also appeared on numerous radio and television shows and has published evaluations of school choice programs and options for public policy foundations such as the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. Burke holds a bachelor’s degree in politics from Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia, and a master’s degree in foreign language education from the University of Virginia. She is also currently studying education policy and research methodology as a doctoral student at George Mason University.
