John Bellaire
Policy and Evaluation


John Bellaire is an intern at Bellwether in the Policy and Evaluation practice area. His work focuses on school finance equity and higher education. 

A rising senior at Brown University, John will earn degrees in education studies and international and public affairs upon graduation in the Class of 2025. While at Brown, he worked with Professor David Rangel on a study presented to the American Educational Research Association that interrogates how race, class, language, and school actions intersect to shape school-based parental involvement. As an intern with the Boston Schools Fund, John analyzed over-enrollment patterns for Boston Public School kindergarten programs to shed light on inequitable access to quality instruction across the district. 

John has worked as an elementary school substitute teacher, summer camp counselor, and peer academic advisor for many years. He will write a senior thesis that examines the causal effects of school corporal punishment policies.

Why I do this work:

As a public school student growing up in Massachusetts, I was fortunate to have many life-changing educators that made me the person I am today. Their empathy and indefatigable efforts inspire me to ensure that all students have caring mentors and receive high-quality instruction.
