About

Jane S. Shaw joined the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy in 2006 as executive vice president and became president in 2008. Shaw spent 22 years with PERC, the Property and Environment Research Center in Bozeman, Montana, where she was a senior fellow and director of communication.

Earlier in her career, Shaw was a journalist. Before joining PERC, she was an associate economics editor of Business Week, working in New York City. Previously, she was a correspondent for McGraw-Hill Publications in Washington, D.C., and Chicago. Shaw received her bachelor's degree in English literature from Wellesley College.

With Michael Sanera she coauthored Facts, Not Fear: Teaching Children about the Environment (Regnery 1999). She coedited A Guide to Smart Growth: Shattering Myths and Providing Solutions (Heritage Foundation, 2000) with Ronald Utt. She initiated a Greenhaven Press book series for young people, Critical Thinking about Environmental Issues and was an author of two books in the series.

In recent years, her writing has been primarily about higher education. Recently she explored the question of whether education is a public good in an article in the Independent Review and discussed the college bubble in Academic Questions.

Shaw is a member of the Board of Visitors of Ralston College, a college under development in Savannah, Georgia, and a trustee of the Philadelphia Society. She is a past president of the Association of Private Enterprise Education and a senior editor of Liberty, editorial adviser to Econ Journal Watch, a member of the Editorial Advisory Panel of Regulation, and a member of the Editorial Advisory Council of the Institute of Economic Affairs (London).

Gov. Pat McCrory was caught a bit off guard when he discussed higher education on Bill Bennett's radio show Tuesday. Some people are saying McCrory made a gaffe (or, less politely "stepped into it.")
