CUE professor's research suggests school choice may accelerate gentrification

CUE Assistant Professor Francis A. Pearman's research on school choice and gentrification is examined in The Atlantic:

When Francis Pearman was studying at Vanderbilt, he and a fellow graduate student noticed a striking phenomenon in Nashville: White, affluent families were moving into low-income neighborhoods without sending their children to the neighborhood schools.

“We were really curious to see what that relationship looked like at the national level,” said Pearman, now a professor at the University of Pittsburgh.
