Does Moving to Better Neighborhoods Lead to Better Schooling Opportunities? Parental School Choice in an Experimental Housing Voucher Program
The present article uses mixed methods to explore the relationship between housing and school opportunities for low-income families given the chance to move to less poor communities through the federal Moving to Opportunity (MTO) housing voucher experiment. Quantitative analyses suggest that new housing opportunities did not generally translate into a larger increase in school quality because families did not secure housing in communities with the highest-performing schools. Qualitative findings explore how structural constraints and parenting practices interact to affect where children attend school.
