“Economics helped me develop a global perspective and look at all the moving parts in the complex system we call public education,” Nick stated in a recent email. “The ability to find relative data and know how to find correlations has helped me become an educational leader and create systematic change within my school. I also manage the entire school budget which I felt comfortable with based on my education in both Economics and Mathematics.”  (Last Updated 3/23/19)
