Donahue Institute wins DoDEA contract
The University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute received a $1.15 million contract to assist the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) in determining the feasibility of transferring the students, facilities, and operations of 58 Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS) to Local Education Agency (LEA) control.
The study will be led by Dr. Michael Goodman, director of economic research and analysis. He will be assisted by Mary Mader, who worked at the Massachusetts Department of Education prior to joining the Institute's Organizational Development and Training Unit. Working collaboratively with the institute will be faculty from UMass Amherst School of Management (Drs. Ronald Mannino and Joseph Sardinas) and UMass Lowell School of Education (Dr. Patricia Anthony). The project will also draw on a panel of nationally and internationally known school finance experts (Dr. Kern Alexander, Dr. Richard Salmon, and Dr. Deborah Verstegen).
