This chapter focuses on the socioeconomic school integration plans. It begins with a brief historical overview examining why a number of school districts began placing an emphasis on socioeconomic integration, particularly over the past decade. It then provides a survey of more than 80 districts using socioeconomic status as a factor in student assignment, describing the major ways in which the plans differ. The chapter also draws lessons about how well the existing programs are working and makes recommendations about what could be done to improve outcomes further.

Keywords:   socioeconomic integration plans, school districts, socioeconomic status, student assignment, integration
