Author(s) - William Mathis and Kevin Welner, University of Colorado Boulder
Despite advocates advancing the notion that integration can be promoted by increased school choice, a new brief considers the research evidence of those policies.

The National Education Policy Center published the brief with funding from the Great Lakes Center for Education Research and Practice.
