He is a Fellow in the Center for the Study of Religion as well as the Institution for Educational Initiatives. His main research interests are in education, religion, and politics. Sikkink’s publications include articles on pathways from religious participation of teenagers to educational outcomes (The Sociological Quarterly). It reveals how religious participation affects social capital and extracurricular participation of teenagers, which in turn leads to better educational outcomes. David’s has also investigated the relation between religious tradition and views of public schools, which resulted in an article in Social Forces, “The Social Sources of Alienation from Public Schools.” His current work focuses on school sector effects on outcomes in the young adult years, such as civic participation and political engagement, giving and volunteering, educational degrees, and occupation.
