Faber and Hailey will assess how the foreclosure crisis of the early twenty-first century affected student academic performance, the racial achievement gap, and school racial segregation (both within and across school districts). They will estimate changes over time in district-level student achievement and segregation using SEDA data and data on foreclosures between 2006 and 2016.
