Measuring Between-School Segregation in an Open Enrollment System: The Case of Rio de Janeiro
Bartholo, Tiago Lisboa
Journal of School Choice, v7 n3 p353-371 2013
Recent research in Rio de Janeiro public schools has brought to light a "Hidden Quasi-Market" that combines purported freedom of choice for parents with school control over their pupil intake. The article analyzes patterns of segregation among schools, from 2004 to 2010, according to three indicators of potentially disadvantaged pupils: Ethnic Background, Poverty, and Parents' Education. Segregation was assessed utilizing the Dissimilarity Index and the Segregation Index. The segregation trends over time, using different pupil characteristics, show distinctive trajectories, which might suggest at least two different segregation processes. Initial findings reinforce the need to track segregation by multiple pupil characteristics.
