Galenson, David W.
American Journal of Education, v105 n3 p261-93 May 1997
Investigates whether 19th-century children of immigrants living in ethnic ghettos were less likely to attend school than their peers who lived elsewhere. It considers the sources of the relationship between neighborhood of residence and school attendance in Boston (Massachusetts) and Chicago (Illinois) by examining the structure of their markets for education and the behavior of the suppliers of education.
