Sarah Reber has cooperated with the Los Angeles Unified School District to conduct a randomized controlled trial of two interventions designed to increase college enrollment among disadvantaged students. She is an Associate Professor of Public Policy in the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. She received her doctorate in economics from Harvard University in 2003. Reber is an applied economist trained in public finance and labor economics, specializing in education and health policy. Her work in health economics examines the advantages and disadvantages of promoting competition in health insurance markets. Reber’s research in education focuses on understanding the educational, social, and fiscal effects—both intended and unintended—of some of the most important policies of the 20th century: school desegregation, the Civil Rights Act, and the massive expansion of federal aid to K-12 education that Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act represented.
