Improving Opportunities for Children:
Advice for the New Administration

The 2016 Paul Offner Lecture

The Urban Institute, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin La Follette School of Public Affairs, invites you to the 2016 Paul Offner Lecture featuring three distinguished scholars: Ron Haskins and Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution and C. Eugene Steuerle of the Urban Institute.

Scholar, state legislator, congressional advisor and educator, the late Paul Offner left a special legacy of applying solid, evidence-driven research to public policy solutions, especially for society’s disadvantaged.

Haskins, Sawhill, and Steuerle will share their recent work and their recommendations for the new administration on how evidence can be used to improve opportunities for children, especially the least advantaged, by encouraging and rewarding education, work, and family stability. They will discuss policies and programs with strong evidence of effectiveness and programs that appear to be cost effective, as well as touching on some of the proposals getting strong attention in the presidential campaign, such as child tax credits, child care, and paid family leave.

Speakers include: 

  • Ron Haskins, senior fellow, Economic Studies, and codirector, Center on Children and Families, Brookings Institution
  • Isabel Sawhill, senior fellow, Economic Studies, Brookings Institution
  • C. Eugene Steuerle, Institute fellow, Urban Institute
  • Nisha Patel, executive director, US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, Urban Institute
