The release coincided with an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., organized by Northeastern in partnership with Marketplace from American Public Media.

Aoun; Amy Scott, education correspondent for Marketplace; Bridget Terry Long, the Saris Professor of Education and Economics at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; and Keyaun Heydarian, a 17-year-old high school senior and founder of CollegeRoleModel.com.
