Rebecca Daulton
Senior Consultant
Strategic Advising

Background: Rebecca Daulton is a senior consultant with Bellwether Education Partners in the Strategic Advising practice area. Rebecca joined the Bellwether team in January 2019 after six years of management consulting and financial regulatory consulting in the private sector at PwC. During her time at PwC, Rebecca also performed pro bono strategic consulting for education-focused nonprofits. Rebecca chairs the Boston Council of Champions for Citizen Schools and has taught after-school programs in New York City and Boston through her involvement with Citizen Schools. 

Rebecca holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a specialization in accounting and finance from Ohio State University. She is also an inactive certified public accountant and has passed Level II of the chartered financial analyst designation.

Why I do this work: I grew up in a predominantly white, suburban community outside of Columbus, Ohio, with access to exceptional education and quickly realized that our country does not provide all youth the same opportunity. I believe all kids, regardless of race, socioeconomic means, or other lines of difference, deserve equal access to a relevant, empowering, and high-quality education.

Experience at Bellwether: Strategic Planning; Data Collection and Analysis; Financial Analysis and Modeling; Implementation Planning; Project Management

Client segments served: K-12 Schools; Postsecondary/Higher Education; Foundations and Grantees; Nonprofit Organizations; Product and Service Providers

Sample clients: OpenSciEd, the New Teacher Center, Great Minds, EMERGE Fellowship, Citizens of the World

Young people who experience disruptive and traumatic events rely on our nation’s child-serving agencies for support to navigate their circumstances, heal from trauma, and return to school, work, and life as healthy and productive citizens. Unfortunately, too often our existing service agencies fall short of meeting the needs of these youth. As a result, students who experience a disruptive event in youth are more likely to experience homelessness, to have unplanned or unwanted pregnancies, and to end up in jail throughout their lifetimes.

"The Value of Harms Avoided: Calculating the Cost of a Fragmented System of Social Services" attempts to calculate both the cost of the current system across multiple disruptions that young people might face and the cost of a hypothetical system in which the first intervention works—allowing the individual to leverage support systems in the future at the rate and cost of a person who did not experience a disruptive event as a child. Based on our calculation, such a system could free up more than $1.5 trillion over the lifetimes of the cohort of youth currently served by care agencies.
