When the Fences Come Down

This chapter illuminates the reciprocal relationship between school and housing segregation. Based largely on the work of noted desegregation scholars, it discusses the theory and research underlying the school-housing link and shows how city-suburban school desegregation policies are far more effective than policies limited to central cities in integrating schools and neighborhoods. It also draws upon a new base of evidence documenting the long-term and extensive relationship between patterns of metropolitan housing development and school construction. With such deeply rooted connections between the two spheres, the chapter acknowledges the latent power in tackling school and housing issues together. Yet despite the increasingly well-acknowledged relationship, many places have relied almost exclusively on school desegregation to begin dismantling American apartheid.
