In this study, I employ geospatial techniques to assess the impact of school attendance zone "gerrymandering" on the racial/ethnic segregation of schools, using a large national sample of 15,290 attendance zones in 663 districts. I estimate the effect of gerrymandering on school diversity and school district segregation by comparing the…

Jacobsen, Rebecca; Frankenberg, Erica; Lenhoff, Sarah Winchell – American Educational Research Journal, 2012
