Race and School Vouchers: Legal, Historical, and Political Contexts. Mark Anthony Gooden, University of Texas at Austin; Mario S. Torres, Texas A&M University; Huriya Jabbar, University of Texas at Austin

This article investigates legal and political issues as they relate to school vouchers serving students of color. Specifically, we draw on the empirical, historical, and legal research to examine whether school vouchers will create a more equitable system of education for poor students of color.

A Federal Lever for School Integration: New Opportunities and Challenges for Magnet Schools. Genevieve P. Siegel-Hawley, Virginia Commonwealth University; Erica Frankenberg, Pennsylvania State University; Rachel Anne Levy, Virginia Commonwealth University; Jennifer Ayscue, University of California, Los Angeles

In 2010, new legal restrictions prompted the federal government to amend regulations to provide greater exibility to school districts applying for the Magnet Schools Assistance Program grant. Districts were no longer required to use binary racial classi cations and could create schools that resulted in minority group enrollments exceeding the district-wide average. This paper explores how 2010 and 2013 grantees applied the regulations, especially with regard to de ning and reducing minority group isolation.

Examining Equity Implications of Local Response to Federal Limits on Diversity: Louisville, Kentucky’s Integration Policy. Erica Frankenberg, Pennsylvania State University

By providing an in-depth analysis to understand the diversity and equity of JCPS’s new controlled choice plan, this study deepens our understanding of dimensions that are critical for assessing the viability of such plans: whether it equitably offers choices to students and whether the choices granted affect student enrollment. This analysis of student-level data suggests that the policy grants certain subgroups their first choice of school more frequently, which affects subsequent district enrollment.
