Can Housing Policy Ameliorate the Effect of Poverty on Academic Performance?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Educational research and reforms tend to focus on what happens inside schools, despite research consistently indicating that non-school factors contribute more to the large achievement gap between different races and classes than do in-school factors. Poverty impacts academic performance in myriad ways, but the research on neighborhood effects is particularly well developed. As a result, recent research and commentary has focused on social reform – particularly involving housing policy – as a potential solution. Research on the effects of housing policies, however, has been decidedly mixed. Equally muddled is the theoretical framework underlying the attempt to alter educational performance through moving families to new homes and/or neighborhoods. I review existing theory and research and introduce some additional factors that should be considered when designing and evaluating housing policy.
