Title:Housing costs, zoning, and access to high quality schools
Organization:Brookings Institution
Short Description:One of the central issues that limits educational opportunity for low-income and minority children is their disproportionate concentration in low-performing schools. In particular, limiting the development of inexpensive housing in affluent neighborhoods and jurisdictions fuels economic and racial segregation and contributes to significant differences in school performance across the metropolitan landscape.
Annotation:One of the central issues that limits educational opportunity for low-income and minority children is their disproportionate concentration in low-performing schools. In particular, limiting the development of inexpensive housing in affluent neighborhoods and jurisdictions fuels economic and racial segregation and contributes to significant differences in school performance across the metropolitan landscape. While the connections between the real estate market and school performance have been widely studied, this is the first nationwide report to estimate the actual costs associated with living near a given public school. Likewise, while zoning has been studied intensely, this is the first national report to link zoning data with school test score data. This paper proceeds as follows. The first section surveys academic research on educational achievement with an emphasis on the relative effects of schools and families in shaping educational outcomes. A methodology section provides a summary of data sources and defines the main variables measured. The paper then examines differences in school test score performance among different racial/ethnic/income groups, how these differences vary across metropolitan areas, and implications for educational outcomes. Subsequent findings explore potential explanations for school inequality, including large gaps in housing costs, which are correlated with exclusionary zoning laws. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of public policy implications.
