US Schools

US Schools is devoted to studies of school segregation and educational disparities in the decades since the Brown v. Board of Education ruling.  It includes data and reports on court cases, changing racial and ethnic composition of schools, poverty levels and student achievement.  It also includes a web-based GIS system that maps the school data.  Many scholars have worked on this project: John Logan, Lisa Minca, Sinem Adar, Weiwei Zhang (South Dakota State University), Deirdre Oakley (Georgia State University), and Julia Burdick-Will (Johns Hopkins University) among them. Click below to enter the system:
