Missing the Goal: A Visual Guide to Sheff vs. O'Neill School Desegregation
Dougherty, Jack; Wanzer, Jesse; Ramsay, Christina
Center for Education Policy Analysis
By June 2007, at least 30 percent of the public school minority students residing in Hartford will have an educational experience with reduced isolation through three voluntary programs: (a) Interdistrict magnet schools; (b) Open Choice (also known as Project Choice); and (c) Interdistrict cooperative grants. Project Choice is a voluntary program where city students may transfer to a suburban school district (or vice versa), modeled on the former Project Concern program. This paper presents a brief chronology of Sheff vs. O'Neill. This paper also provides answers to the following questions: (1) How has Project Choice enrollment changed over time?; (2) How much do suburbs participate in Project Choice?; (3) Which magnet schools count toward the Sheff goal?; (4) Which districts send students to magnet schools?; (5) Who enrolls in magnet schools?; (6) Who applies to magnet schools?; (7) How much progress on Sheff goal since last year?; and (8) Why did Connecticut fail to meet the Sheff goal? (Contains 8 tables and 4 charts.) [This paper was co-published by the Research Project at Trinity College and the Center for Education Policy Analysis at University of Connecticut.]
