Fred Brooks; Gloria Claudio – Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 2024
This article documents how an MSW student in an introductory community practice course took her class assignment and over the course of two years revitalized, democratized, and transformed a sclerotic, corporate-run Home Owners Association (HOA).

Schwalbach, Jude – Heritage Foundation, 2022
During the 20th century, federally sanctioned housing "redlining" influenced the composition of neighborhoods in large cities across the country, including Washington, D.C.

Mordechay, Kfir; Mickey-Pabello, David; Ayscue, Jennifer B. – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2023
The rapid gentrification occurring in major cities may have a significant impact on California and the distribution of wealth and opportunity for its families, similar to the vast suburbanization that occurred during the baby boom era. The White flight from central city neighborhoods has far-reaching consequences, particularly in regard to school…

Mordechay, Kfir; Ayscue, Jennifer B. – Education and Urban Society, 2024
College-educated White households have increasingly opted to live in central urban neighborhoods, transforming many parts of the urban core. While there is emerging evidence that schools may play a key part in this process, little is known about the extent of racial contract between children of gentrifier households and original residents. This…

Julia Burdick-Will; Leela Gebo; Alexandra D. Williams – Sociology of Education, 2024
In this study, we examine whether students in violent neighborhoods actively avoid their local school as a form of social and physical protection. Specifically, we use 10 years of administrative data (2010-2020) from the high school choice open enrollment program in the Baltimore City Public School System to evaluate the interaction between…

Asson, Sarah; Frankenberg, Erica; Maselli, Annie; Burfoot-Rochford, Ian; Fowler, Christopher S.; Buck, Ruth Krebs – Education Finance and Policy, 2023
School attendance zone boundary (AZB) data remain relatively underdocumented and understudied within the field of education, despite their critical implications for educational (in)equity. AZBs shape student outcomes and residential sorting patterns both by determining the public schools a student is assigned to and by signaling neighborhood…

Phillips, Nolan E.; Levy, Brian L.; Sampson, Robert J.; Small, Mario L.; Wang, Ryan Q. – Sociological Methods & Research, 2021
The social integration of a city depends on the extent to which people from different neighborhoods have the opportunity to interact with one another, but most prior work has not developed formal ways of conceptualizing and measuring this kind of connectedness. In this article, we develop original, network-based measures of what we call…

McCoy, Dana Charles; Sabol, Terri J.; Hanno, Emily C.; Odgers, Candice L. – AERA Open, 2022
Little research in education has focused on school neighborhoods. We employ a novel systematic social observation tool--the internet-based School Neighborhood Assessment Protocol (iSNAP)--within Google Street View to quantify the physical characteristics of 291 preschool communities in nine U.S. cities. We find low to moderate correlations (r =…

Elizabeth A. Shewark; Alexandra Y. Vazquez; Amber L. Pearson; Kelly L. Klump; S. Alexandra Burt – Developmental Psychology, 2024
Neighborhood is a key context where children learn to process social information; however, the field has largely overlooked the ways children's individual characteristics might be moderated by neighborhood effects. We examined 1,030 six- to 11-year-olds (48.7% female; 82% White) twin pairs oversampled for neighborhood disadvantage from the Twin…

Hui Zhang; Mark Fifer Seilhamer; Yin Ling Cheung – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2024
Responding to a recent call for interdisciplinary research into 'night studies', the present study attempts to put the nighttime at the centre of the sociolinguistic enquiry, seeking to explore how the nocturnal linguistic landscape (LL) differs from the diurnal LL by drawing on Singapore's Chinatown as the research site. A total of 1091 LL items…

Cubides-Mateus, Deiby Mayaris; LoCasale-Crouch, Jennifer; Turnbull, Khara L. P. – Prevention Science, 2023
Despite previous studies showing that children's development of executive function (EF) skills is associated with the differing contexts in which children live, evidence about the independent and synergistic effects of families and neighborhoods is limited. Using a sample from a two-cohort longitudinal study of preschoolers from low-income…

This study examined how parents' perception of neighborhood conditions are associated with school absenteeism and participation in afterschool activities, and how social support networks moderate those linkages among two-parent and single-parent families. Data from the second and third Waves of the "Making Connections" Survey were…
