Institute for Reforming Government: Hires Principal Research Director Quinton Klabon

Madison, Wis. – The Institute for Reforming Government has hired Quinton Klabon as Senior Research Director to develop elementary and higher education policy solutions for Wisconsin. He can be reached at [email protected].

Quinton worked for seven years at Saint Marcus Lutheran School in Milwaukee, one of the only five-star schools in Wisconsin to serve low-income black students. He still actively mentors many students and alumni of Saint Marcus.

His most recent job was as education policy advisor to US Congressman Mike Gallagher (R), where he was instrumental in the design of Gallagher’s AEI-published plan, “Wisconsin 2030: The Education Path to Prosperity”.

Quinton is a proud Dartmouth College alumnus and Wisconsin Rapids native. He holds a graduate degree from Harvard University, where he studied educational policy under Professors Marty West and Paul Peterson.

“After a historic legislative session and unprecedented parental engagement across Wisconsin, there is so much momentum behind education reform,” said CJ Szafir, president of the Institute for Reforming Government. “Quinton is a massive addition to the Institute for Reforming Government and the education reform movement in Wisconsin. His understanding of education policy – from St. Marcus to Congressman Gallagher’s office to academia – will help us ensure that every child in Wisconsin attends a high-quality school and reaches college, technical college or apprenticeship of his choice.
