Sarah Rabovsky

Sarah Rabovsky, a fourth-year PhD student in K-12 education policy at the USC Rossier School of Education, completed her Master of Public Policy at the USC Price School of Public Policy and MS in Statistics at California State University, East Bay. Prior to this, she earned her BA in Political Science from UCLA and spent a year teaching English in Japan. She then returned to her hometown of Sacramento and spent four years working for Capitol Impact, a political consulting firm focused on California education reform. Her research interests include the topics of school/district interventions, teacher workforce, and accountability. She is specifically interested in looking at the attraction and retention of effective teachers in underperforming schools, and the effectiveness of interventions, such as school choice and school takeover, on teacher staffing and retention.
