Rucker C. Johnson

University of California, Berkeley

Johnson will analyze the consequences of school desegregation and school quality on adult educational attainment, earnings, incarceration, and health status. Based on these findings, Johnson will write a book evaluating the long-term impact of War on Poverty policies that were designed to improve school resources for minority and poor children. He will also analyze the links between educational investment and childhood development from preschool to high school and beyond.
