Title: Can Democratizing Educational Opportunities Reduce School Segregation?

Summary: This project uses comparative interrupted time series analyses to examine whether an egalitarian redistribution of college-going opportunities across high schools—automatic admissions policies (AAPs; e.g., the Texas Top Ten Percent Plan) — affects student sorting across high schools in ways that reduce racial segregation.
