Educational opportunity in the United States has always been inextricably linked to geography. Disparities of opportunity across zip codes begin at birth and often persist and even expand into K–12 schooling and beyond into college and career. We bring together research examining how different circumstances operate in different geographic contexts (Texas, New Orleans, and Washington D.C.). Throughout these papers, we focus on how local politics and place affect short and long-term opportunities of students.
