Before that, he worked for the Illinois Education Research Council, an entity statutorily charged with providing policy research for the state's P-20 Council. Chris has taught at the early childhood, elementary, middle and high school levels, and at four universities. He continues to serve as a guest lecturer at institutions across the country.

A prolific researcher and writer, Chris has co-authored books, journal articles, and policy briefs on the influence of state P-20 education structures on the educational decisions of both institutions and individuals. His work has been reported on in The Wall Street Journal, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education and EdWeek among others.
