Dr. Sarah E. LaCour’s current work includes an investigation of the equity in access to educational opportunity under a state-wide school choice initiative. She relies on her years of experience both as a classroom teacher and as a practicing litigator to inform her research. Her research interests lie in policy evaluations using both legal and quasi-experimental analysis. Her recent publications include quasi-experimental analyses of Denver’s professional compensation program and of a detracking initiative in upstate New York. She is also published in both legal handbooks and practitioner periodicals.
