The Changing Influence of Educational Policy and Race on Metropolitan Inequality, 1970-2010
Johnson, Odis, Jr.
Educational Forum, v81 n2 p175-192 2017
Schools do not receive much recognition within urban sociological research for the role they perform in shaping the demographic, structural, and social features of neighborhoods, cities, and metropolitan areas. In contrast, this article links schools, and the racial avoidance that operates through educational policy, to the extreme economic polarization of metropolitan areas. The author considers why the expansion of school choice has not yet produced the decline in economic polarization that research suggested it might.
