Research-Based Options for Education Policymaking – Housing Policy

Policy Brief - May 24, 2016

Author(s) - Kevin G. Welner and William J. Mathis, University of Colorado Boulder

Because educational opportunities and life chances are inextricably tied to family wealth and housing advantages, Kevin Welner and William Mathis call for a comprehensive, cohesive approach to address societal inequities. In Housing Policy, the authors recommend that multiple approaches can and should be implemented as a united set of mutually supportive initiatives. In their recommendations, the authors suggest that housing integration policies that address housing supply and affordability can be beneficial.
