Research Interests

My primary research interest is the historical development of public, K-12 education finance policy in the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. Previously I studied American philanthropy, education in the South, segregation in education, and black schools in the South.

My current project investigates the history of Texas' school finance policy from the Republic of Texas to the present as a lens into broader issues of how school finance serves a site of contestation between different racial, socioeconomic, geographic, and political constituencies.
