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

Grant Year: 2018

Thurston Domina, Deven Carlson, Andrew McEachin, and Andrew Penner will examine the extent to which a policy designed to balance enrollment in schools among children from families with a variety of income levels can increase achievement among students from disadvantaged backgrounds. They will partner with the Wake County Public School System in order to 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.
