Until I read about him in the New York Times, I had not heard of Richard Kahlenberg before, but his ideas strike me as very intriguing. At the outset, I want to make clear he is a progressive, I repeat, progressive, academic. He’s also exceptionally well-credentialed:

Kahlenberg graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1985 and cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1989. Between college and law school, he spent a year in Kenya at the University of Nairobi School of Journalism, as a Rotary Scholar.

Kahlenberg has been a Senior Fellow at The Century Foundation, a Fellow at the Center for National Policy, a visiting associate professor of constitutional law at George Washington University, and a legislative assistant to Senator Charles S. Robb (D-VA). He is serves on the advisory board of the Pell Institute and the Albert Shanker Institute.
