Topic: High Stakes, No Effects: Effects of Failing the California High School Exit Exam
"In the absence of strong transportation and choice or lottery mechanisms to counter residential segregation patterns, an income integration regime is likely to result in many students attending schools relatively near their homes in racially segregated neighborhoods.... [I]ncome and race cannot stand as proxies for one another in school integration policies. Absent some substantial decline in racial residential segregation, race-neutral assignment policies are unlikely to produce significant racial school desegregation." (Reardon, Yun, & Kurlaender, 2006)

My research focuses on the causes and consequences of social and educational inequality. In particular, I study the causes and consequences of residential and school segregation and the sources of racial/ethnic achievement gaps. In addition, I am interested in methods of measurement and causal inference in educational and social science research
