Segregation in Neighborhoods and Schools: Impacts on Minority Children in the Boston Region - This report examines 1990 and 2000 federal census and other data to identify the residential patterns of the under-18 population in the seven-county area around Boston. Findings consider the neighborhood segregation of black and Hispanic children in 2000, segregation in elementary schools, and are disaggregated for the city of Boston, other cities, suburbs and the regional total. The researchers likewise propose policy implications for these data. According to the report, “black and Hispanic children are highly segregated in the neighborhoods where they live. They also live in unequal neighborhoods, as measured by neighborhoods’ income levels, poverty rate, unemployment, homeownership and other indicators.” (John R. Logan, Deirdre Oakley and Jacob Stowell, Lewis Mumford Center for Comparative Urban and Regional Research, University at Albany, September 2003)...
