A new report by the Brookings Institution links housing prices and zoning policies to access to high-quality schools by low-income students. According to the report, the average low-income student attends a school where students score in the 42nd percentile on standardized tests, while their middle- and high-income counterparts attend schools where test scores reach the 61st percentile. "I do think zoning is an underlying problem," the study's author, Jonathan Rothwell, said.
How do zoning practices affect students' access to top schools?
