Annette Lareau

University of Pennsylvania

Lareau will explore how parents of young children choose where to live and where to send their children to school. She argues that school selection is not a matter of individual parents making a decision in isolation but instead a socially-shaped dynamic through which parents seek to transmit advantages to their school-aged children. She will draw on interviews with parents in three suburban neighborhoods to analyze school-choice decisions.
