Walter currently works with the Texas Education Agency to support districts within the System of Great Schools network. His work aims to design funding systems that empower school leaders to make resource-use decisions that are best aligned to the needs of their specific students and staff.

Recently, Walter has led the development of ERS's Strategy Resource Blitz service line, a week-long comprehensive analysis to identify current resource use patterns and recommend promising shifts related to human capital, funding, portfolio, school design and school support. In other ERS projects, Walter has worked public school districts in Massachusetts, New Orleans, LA; Memphis, TN; Jackson, Mississippi; and Allen Parish, LA.

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 with his chihuahua/yorkie.
