Dr. Loeb specializes in the economics of education, and the relationship between schools and federal, state and local policies. Her work focuses particularly on school finance and teacher labor markets.  Her research addresses teacher policy, looking specifically at how teachers' preferences affect the distribution of teaching quality across schools, how pre-service coursework requirements affect the quality of teacher candidates, and how reforms affect teachers' career decisions. She also studies school leadership and school finance, for example looking at how the structure of state finance systems affects the level and distribution of resources across schools.
