Discussion Paper from one of our Data Impact Fellows

Matteo Sandi is one of our UK Data Service Data Impact Fellows for 2017. Matteo is a Research Economist at the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Matteo joined LSE in October 2015 and his current fields of research are the economics of crime and the economics of education.

Matteo has recently co-authored and published a discussion paper on the CEP website concerning one of his current research projects looking into UK schools which have converted to academies and whether they have used exclusion as a method to shape their pool of test-taking students.

We’re excited to be able to share the great work of one of our UK Data Service Impact Fellows. Look out for his forthcoming blog entry.
