Senior Analyst, Resource Equity

As the senior analyst for P-12 resource equity, Ivy Morgan designs and conducts data and policy analyses that contribute to The Education Trust’s work to ensure that students living in poverty and students of color get their fair share of resources — including funding and equitable access to effective educators, school counselors, advanced coursework, and high-quality preschool.

Prior to joining Ed Trust, Ivy worked as an education research analyst in the Policy and Program Studies Service at the U.S. Department of Education. At the Department, Ivy primarily managed medium-term projects and conducted short-term data analyses on a range of P-12 topics including teacher equity, fiscal equity, and socioeconomic diversity.

A native of New Haven, Connecticut, Ivy holds a master’s degree in public administration from the George Washington University and a bachelor’s degree in urban studies and planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Baking and other crafty things.

Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?

My experiences at MIT, as well as time spent tutoring and mentoring children from low-income neighborhoods, helped shape my passion for education equity. At Ed Trust, I get to put that passion to work ­— alongside talented and like-minded colleagues.
