EdNext Podcast: How Students Are Kept Out of the Best Public Schools

“Some of these zones are very, very weird, misshapen things.”

The author of A Fine Line: How Most American Kids Are Kept Out of the Best Public Schools, Tim DeRoche, joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss his new book and how public-school attendance zones may violate a federal civil rights law, the Equal Educational Opportunity Act of 1974.

DeRoche’s article for Education Next, “Public-School Attendance Zones Violate a Civil Rights Law,” is available now.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
