The Carrot or the Stick for School Desegregation Policy?
Rossell, Christine H.
Urban Affairs Quarterly, v25 n3 p474-99 Mar 1990
Compares the public-choice model for school desegregation, which involves parents choosing magnet schools, to the command-and-control model, which involves mandatory reassignment plans, in order to evaluate the desegregation effectiveness of each plan. The public-choice model works for school desegregation. Mandatory reassignment produces more White flight. (JS)
