PUBLIC HOUSING AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS: ARE SUBSIDIZED RESIDENTS AT AN EDUCATIONAL DISADVANTAGE?
Spatial Justice Faculty Fellow
This research examines the relationship between the siting of federally subsidized housing and the quality of public schools closest to residents of those homes. Specifically, I ask whether residents of public housing developments, subsidized apartment communities, and the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) in Forsyth County, North Carolina face disadvantages in the quality of their neighborhood public schools. In this final report, I compare the quality of schools in local districts of children in these types of housing to countywide averages.
