Finnigan, Kara S.; Holme, Jennifer Jellison; Orfield, Myron; Luce, Tom; Diem, Sarah; Mattheis, Allison; Hylton, Nadine D. – Educational Policy, 2015
Although regional equity scholars have demonstrated how cross-jurisdictional collaboration on transportation, housing, and employment can promote opportunity for low-income families, few have paid serious attention to the potential of regional "educational" policy to improve opportunity for children. This study seeks to address this gap…

The "New Orleans Tribune" (1864-1870), the first black daily newspaper in the United States, was the singular text in the public South at its time to staunchly advocate for public, integrated education, anticipating the ruling of "Brown v. Board of Education," and arguing that separate education would always be synonymous with…

The case of Flint, Michigan, complicates these views, at once illustrating the depth of governmental commitment to…
