Setren, Elizabeth – Education Next, 2020
Maximizing the potential of all students is the stated goal of many schools. When some students have specialized needs, however, the best way forward isn't always clear. Nationwide, special-education students and English learners account for a significant share of total enrollment: federal data from 2016 show 14 percent of all students receive…

Greenberg, Erica; Luetmer, Grace; Chien, Carina; Monarrez, Tomas – Urban Institute, 2020
Since 2014, the District of Columbia has used an annual common application to place new students from prekindergarten for 3-year-olds (PK3) through 12th grade in DC Public Schools (DCPS) and DC public charter schools.

Binder, Amy J.; Abel, Andrea R. – Sociology of Education, 2019
The study of elites is enjoying a revival at a time of increasing economic inequality. Sociologists of education have been leaders in this area, researching how affluent families position their children to compete favorably in a highly stratified higher education system.

Lueken, Martin F. – EdChoice, 2019
Critics of private school choice programs argue that they drain resources from public schools and increase taxpayer costs. Supporters of these programs, on the other hand, argue that these programs save taxpayers money because the average amount of scholarships is less than per pupil spending in public schools. Given these fiscal concerns, when…

Barrow, Lisa; Sartain, Lauren – University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, 2019
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) offers many options when it comes to high school enrollment. In fact, since the 2015-16 school year, about three out of every four incoming ninth-graders have chosen to attend a high school other than their assigned neighborhood school. Despite the widespread engagement in school choice, the high school application…

Merry, Michael S.; Arum, Richard – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Selection within the educational domain breeds a special kind of suspicion. Whether it is the absence of transparency in the selection procedure, the observable outcomes of the selection, or the criteria of selection itself, there is much to corroborate the suspicion many have that selection in practice is unfair. And certainly as it concerns…

Hess's (2010) organizational theory was the theoretical…

Rodriguez, Awilda – Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Many have called for improved alignment between high school graduation and college admission requirements. However, few have empirically examined the extent to which courses needed for college admission are not offered by high schools, which I call underalignment. Using high school-level data from the Office for Civil Rights, I examined high…
