How DC’s School Boundaries Shape Housing and Travel Patterns
School boundaries and feeder patterns not only shape the lives of children, they affect housing, travel patterns, and can contribute to citywide segregation. A 2019 Urban Institute report finds that these lines create unequal schools not only based on race and ethnicity, but on staffing, discipline, and test scores. Moreover, across the US, these boundaries hew closely to redlining maps — the racist, New Deal-era federal policy that determined who was and wasn’t worthy of home loans based on race. Meanwhile, DC is poised for school redistricting in the near future.

Building on an ongoing GGWash series by journalist Abigail Higgins, venture behind the headlines for a virtual conversation with local experts on what school boundaries and feeder patterns are, and how they shape our lives.

Moderator: Abigail Higgins, journalist
Panelists:
Chelsea Coffin, Director, Education Policy Initiative, DC Policy Center
Councilmember Christina Henderson, DC Council
Dan Reed, Regional Policy Director, Greater Greater Washington

This webinar is part of Intersections, GGWash’s recurring educational webinar series. The conversation will be recorded and will include time for audience Q&A. This webinar is made possible through a grant from Education Forward DC.
