This chapter investigates the impacts of socioeconomic status (SES) integration in Wake County, North Carolina and Cambridge, Massachusetts. First, it provides a definition of SES integration, along with a brief discussion of how districts measure poverty status. This is followed by an examination of the political context surrounding the Wake County and Cambridge assignment plans, and an analysis of racial and SES enrollment data and student- achievement outcomes. The chapter concludes with a discussion of implications that might be drawn from SES integration in these two districts.
