March Monthly Research Digest

The March 2018 Digest offers extended editorial commentary on on a paper Stephen Billings and colleagues, entitled 'Gentrification and Failing Schools: The Unintended Consequences of School Choice under NCLB'. The paper paper shows how well meaning yet poorly designed choice reforms may end up not directly benefiting the pupils they target, highlighting the importance of clear thinking around the incentives created by policymakers when implementing such reforms. At the same time, the paper also verifies the idea that even poorly-designed choice programmes may reduce residential income stratification and improve neighbourhood quality, in line with prior theoretical modelling.
