Jennifer Jennings

Professor of Sociology, Princeton University

Jennings will examine the barriers to access to high-quality high schools for low-income students. Using a decade of administrative data from the New York City Department of Education, she will analyze how students’ school choices and placements are influenced by their families, their proximity to good schools, and schools’ admissions policies. She will also explore the extent to which providing low-income families with resources such as fact sheets on high-performing schools can increase their placement at those schools.
