"Income, Inequality, Educational Outcomes"

Sean Reardon, Professor of Education, Stanford University

Income inequality among the families of school-age children in the U.S. has grown sharply in the last 40 years.  What impact has this had on the educational success of U.S. students?  This talk will describe three recent studies that examine the trends in the relationship of income and income inequality to academic achievement and college enrollment.
