This chapter describes the use of magnet schools to promote integration and suggests how federal policy, including the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP), could support these efforts. It establishes a framework for policy makers to utilize MSAP to achieve racial and socioeconomic diversity across urban school districts, and suggests that magnets schools continue to play an important role in the policy discourse and priorities linked to desegregation.
