Edward B. Fiske
Durham Edward B. Fiske, former Education Editor of the New York Times and editor of the Fiske Guide to Colleges, is known around the world for his writing on K-12 education policy and access to higher education. In 1982, he established the Fiske Guide, which is the country's best-selling college guide. He has also co-authored several other books about college admissions. Fiske left the Times in 1991 to devote more time to writing about education in developing countries and subsequently wrote frequently for UNESCO, USAID, the World Bank and other international organizations on issues such as gender equity in education. He and his wife, Helen F. Ladd, a professor of public policy at Duke, co-authored When Schools Compete: A Cautionary Tale (2010), a book on parental choice in New Zealand, and Elusive Equity: Education Reform in Post-Apartheid South Africa (2004), a study of South Africa's struggle to create a democratic state education system. In 2010 they lived in Amsterdam and carried out research on the Dutch system of weighted student funding for low-income pupils. In 2015 they lived in London and did a study of the success that Inner London boroughs have had in educating clusters of disadvantaged pupils. Fiske has previously served three terms on the Council's board of Directors, including a stint as Chair, and currently serves as Chair of the Program Committee.
