Fault Lines: America’s Most Segregating School District Borders (EdBuild, August 2016)
An excellent website organized around the April 11, 2015 “Promise of Integrated Schools” conference at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Worth visiting!
A state-of-the-art research project designed to meet the urgent need for a national, integrated information source that helps us understand:
- Who our children are, by documenting and tracking the rapidly changing demographics of children and families in the U.S.;
- What our children need, by establishing a system for monitoring not only child outcomes, but also key factors (including opportunities, conditions, and resources) that drive child outcomes;
- How to improve opportunities for all children, especially those that may need the most help, by focusing explicitly and rigorously on issues of racial/ethnic and socioeconomic equity in child health and wellbeing.

The NRC examines each state’s level of commitment to equal educational opportunity, regardless of a student’s background, family income, or where she or he attends school. The NRC evaluates all 50 states and the District of Columbia on four separate, but interrelated, funding “fairness indicators” — funding level, distribution, state fiscal effort, and coverage. Reports have been issued in 2014, 2012, and 2010.
This resource was created by the Education Law Center, an NCSD member organization.
A searchable database with approximately 400 entries that concern the effects of school and classroom ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic (SES) composition on specific outcomes. Outcomes include educational achievement (with a special emphasis on mathematics and science outcomes), educational attainment, interracial friendships, intergroup relations, and adult life-course trajectories such as occupational attainment, the intergenerational perpetuation of racial stereotypes and fears, and social cohesion in democratic, ethnically and racially plural societies.

This site offers educational resources and information on prejudice, discrimination, multiculturalism, and diversity. It aims to reduce the level of intolerance and bias in contemporary society.
