Socioeconomic Segregation and Educational Opportunity: A Research Partnership with the Wake County Public Schools

Grant Year: 2019

Thurston Domina, Deven Carlson, Andrew McEachin, and Andrew Penner will examine the extent to which a policy to advance socioeconomic integration among children in schools can increase achievement among students from disadvantaged backgrounds. In partnership with the Wake County Public School System, they will assess the impacts of a past integration policy that factored in socioeconomic status. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers and briefings for policymakers.
