Wisman, R. Aaron – Education and Urban Society, 2020
Since "Meredith v. Jefferson County Board of Education" et al., school districts seeking to voluntarily integrate schools have designed a host of metrics to structure within-school diversity using characteristics of students' neighborhoods rather than the race of individual students. This study utilizes a correlational-multiple…

Mikulyuk, Ashley B.; Braddock, Jomills H. – Education and Urban Society, 2018
Despite existing research that demonstrates the benefits of racial diversity in education, the Court has become increasingly disinclined to allow the use of race or ethnicity in education policy targeted to increase race/ethnic diversity, absent a compelling state interest.

Ritter, Gary W.; Jensen, Nathan C.; Kisida, Brian; Bowen, Daniel H. – Education and Urban Society, 2016
We examine the impact of charter schools on school integration in the Little Rock, Arkansas metropolitan area.

However, differences in each case are slight. Using student-level data to…

Brown, Frank; Hunter, Richard C. – Education and Urban Society, 2009
The authors attempt to tell the story of "Brown" and "Parents Involved" on educational inequality and connect these topics to economic competition globally. "Brown" came about in the 1950s in a much different environment: America was less diverse racially and ethnically, and economic competition on a global scale was…

The study uses data from one de facto segregated southern school system that hastily implemented a court order in 2000. The study collects the perceptions of teachers at five predominantly middle-class White schools…
