How School-Assignment Policies Impact Communities
CM | 1.25
Date: Monday, April 15
Activity Code: S523
Room: Columbus Hall C/D
Over the last 40 years, many cities across the United States have shifted from neighborhood zone-based public school assignment to controlled choice that helps balance school composition and create broader access to quality schools. How has this change in school-assignment policies impacted neighborhoods and communities? The session uses case studies of four major school districts—Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Jefferson County, Ky.—to illustrate differing approaches to school-assignment policies.
