Student mobility as policy

We discussed student mobility a bit last night.  There’s quite a bit of research, and it’s easy to find with internet search engines.  Education Week did a decent piece on it in 2004 if you want a quick summary with suggestions for alleviating likely problems.  In class I was trying to say a little about the Gautreaux program (moving people out of public housing into subsidized suburban apartments).  One useful discussion (broader than Gautreaux) is Elizabeth DeBray-Pelot and Erica Frankenberg, (2010), Federal legislation to promote metropolitan approaches to educational and housing opportunity.  Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law and Policy, 17, 265-286.  On the other hand, Pauline Lipman has written about how such policies are used as a facet of gentrification in Chicago, and David Imbroscio has critiqued the policy approach of moving people rather than working to improve the neighborhood’s where they live.
