The study authors, from the University of California, Berkeley, the University of
Maryland and the University of California, Irvine, note past research points to benefits
for disadvantaged students when they attend schools with more well-off classmates.
They highlight efforts to create more diverse school enrollments, such as the expansion
of magnet and dual-language immersion programs in Los Angeles and new policies regarding
competitive-admissions high schools in New York City as “signs of progress."
