Lee, Jin – SAGE Open, 2021
Local education governance has allowed neighborhood schools to offer community-oriented curricula and activities, and public schools have been operated to serve only residents' children within the defined areas.

McWilliams, Julia A. – Harvard Education Press, 2019
In districts from Chicago to New York to Washington, DC, neighborhood public schools are being forced to compete with charter schools for students and resources, often under the threat of school closure.

Alexander, Monique; Massaro, Vanessa A. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
The purported purpose of school choice policies is to increase students' access to "good schools." There is little discussion, however, of where those good schools are located, nor of the ways in which the distribution of good schools mirrors broader patterns of uneven development in the United States. Given that schools are neighborhood…

Bailey-Fakhoury, Chasity; Perhamus, Lisa M.; Ma, Kin M. – Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, 2022
Detroit is a dynamic city with a dynamic history, yet it has come to symbolize both White flight (beginning in the 1940s and accelerating in the late 1960s) and Black flight (beginning in the 1990s and reaching its apex in 2000). While Detroit's Black population continues to decline, its White population increased by 22% between 2010 and 2015.…

Mantel, Carola – Intercultural Education, 2020
There have been calls in many European countries to diversify the teaching staff as a response to increasing diversity within student populations. These calls are often based on underlying assumptions that teachers with a migration history are well placed to act as 'intercultural mediators' and 'role models' for successful integration. However,…

Honey, Ngaire; Smrekar, Claire – Urban Education, 2022
In a context that privileges neighborhood zoning and school choice over within-district busing, we examine urban residents' perceptions of the benefits of racial diversity. We analyze public opinion trends by race and residents' experience as a student in a district under court-ordered desegregation--Nashville, TN. We find racial differences…

Bonal, Xavier; Zancajo, Adrián; Scandurra, Rosario – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article explores the relationship between school choice, student mobility and school segregation in Barcelona.

Every year more and more "choice schools" (charter, magnet, expeditionary, and others) open across the United States. Although these schools are subject to the same federal legal requirements as traditional public schools to provide a…
