Leadership transitions are underway at the Secretariat with former co-director Lindsay Stark having taken up a new position at the Washington University’s Brown School. You will find a farewell note from Lindsay below, and I am sure you will all join me in wishing her well at her new institution. I am also pleased to welcome Cassie Landers as the CPC Learning Network’s incoming co-director. Cassie brings decades of experience in child development, parenting, and child protection, having worked in over 60 countries around the world across academic, United Nations, and civil society organizations. Welcome, Cassie!

Finally, more about what you’ll find below: in addition to a number of vacancies (our own and others), we are proud to celebrate the accomplishments of the CPC Learning Network faculty affiliates and advisory board members with articles covering the educational impacts and cost-effectiveness of cash programs in developing countries to two COMPASS studies.
