Kuhn Library, 7th floor. Reardon studies residential and school segregation as well as racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in academic achievement and educational success.
Income inequality among the families of school-age children in the U.S. has grown sharply in the last 40 years. What impact has this had on the educational success of U.S. students? This talk will describe three recent studies that examine the trends in the relationship of income and income inequality to academic achievement and college enrollment.
This lecture is sponsored by the Department of Public Policy and the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Language, Literacy, and Culture.
