In the past year, Walter has supported numerous partner districts in rethinking how they allocate resources to improve the experiences of their students. For Massachusetts school districts, Walter created tools to help new superintendents understand how equitably they allocate their resources and what resource shifts could improve the experiences of their students. More recently, Walter used district enrollment data as well as publicly available census data to analyze and geographically map enrollment trends for Jackson, MS Public Schools. Walter is currently on the Memphis, TN team, which designed options for strategic teacher compensation in Shelby County Schools. Currently, the team is developing tools to drive improvements in the district's annual school planning process.
Before ERS, Walter worked at the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, thinking about how student-centered learning can be used as a lever for racial equity in New England. Prior to that, Walter graduated from Bowdoin College with a BA with honors in Sociology and Education. There, his independent research focused on the intersection of race and class in determining access and inclusion in higher education.
Outside of ERS, Walter most often spends time with friends competing in various lawn games or playing club ultimate frisbee. At home, he is most likely playing with his chihuahua/yorkie mix.
