How Economic Segregation Affects Children's Educational Attainment.
Mayer, Susan E.
Social Forces, v81 n1 p153-76 Sep 2002
Analysis of data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics combined with census data found that an increase in income inequality among census tracts in the same state had little effect on overall educational attainment but exacerbated inequality of attainment between high-income and low-income children. Within-tract inequality had little effect on educational attainment. (Contains 58 references.) (SV)
