A Shared Future: Disrupting the Reciprocal Relationship Between Housing and School Segregation

Philip Tegeler, Michael Hilton

This paper was originally presented at A Shared Future: Fostering Communities of Inclusion in an Era of Inequality, a national symposium hosted by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies in April 2017. The symposium examined how patterns of residential segregation by income and race in the United States are changing and the consequences of residential segregation for individuals and society, and sought to identify the most promising strategies for fostering more inclusive communities in the years to come.

This paper was presented as part of Panel 7 at the symposium, entitled "What would it take... To foster residential outcomes that support school integration, and vice versa?"
