School Choice, Race, and Income In Chicago

DouglauenThere's a new blog out there, the unfortunately-named "Eduwonkette," but we won't hold that against her. 

Last week she posted about a guy named Lauen who studies school choice in Chicago:

week I've been talking about school choice, so who better to introduce
to you than an up and coming school choice researcher. Doug Lauen
is an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation was about the causes and
consequences of Chicago's public school choice programs.

  • We may have to ask ourselves hard questions too such as does anyone know how to teach poor minority children. Their neighborhood school doesn't seem to do a good job. They're less likely to score well enough to get into an SE high school. They're less likely to attend a non-SE choice high school, and if they do, they don't do any better than they would have if their neighborhood school. So by what educational means can poor minority children overcome their neighborhood and their SES status?
