Created by The Thomas B. Fordham Institute and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), the Emerging Education Policy Scholars program brings together the latest Ph.D. scholars and Ph.D. candidates in Washington, D.C. to discuss new education policy and research ideas.   

Little’s latest research has been in classical pedagogy, virtue acquisition and philosophy of education. She said she loves thinking about education research while “refining the ways I teach my own courses.”  

“Being an EEP scholar will permit me to engage with like-minded peers who take seriously the task of education, and I am excited to interact with education policy-makers in Washington, D.C.,” she said. “In my work as an academic, it is – and has always been – a priority for me to make a practical difference and to connect my work with life outside of the academy in a serious way. This is a great opportunity to do that.”
