How the Administration's "Stronger Together" School Integration Proposal Built on the Lessons Learned from the Flawed TASAP Program. Issue Brief No. 7

In 2009, Congress allocated $2.5 million for a competitive federal grant program, "Technical Assistance for Student Assignment Plans" (TASAP), that aimed to increase diversity in public schools, but which had only limited success. The Obama Administration's "Stronger Together" 2017 budget proposal (and the accompanying Stronger Together School Diversity Act of 2016) shows that the U.S. Department of Education (USED) has learned from the experience of TASAP. This issue reports on some of these lessons.
