Chris Harrison National Senior Manager of Data

Raised in suburban Atlanta, Chris’ commitment to education was fostered early in life by his mom, who was a special education teacher. While in college, Chris’ work in politics and public service began with his involvement in several local races, including two school board races.

Before joining Educators for Excellence, Chris worked on political campaigns in several states, serving as a legislative staffer, the New York state data director for the Obama re-election campaign, and a data coordinator for the AFL-CIO. Chris joined E4E because he believes it is vital that those who will be asked to implement education policy be part of the process of shaping it.

"E4E is a place that values people as individuals while giving them a platform to work together to foster positive change."
