Seminar: Bob Bifulco

This paper leverages new school-level finance data to estimate racial differences in exposure to low-income classmates and access to school funding across schools and school districts in U.S. metro areas. We begin by documenting within metropolitan area differences in average percentages of low-income students and in average per pupil spending for black, Hispanic, and white students. We consider the extent to which the disparities are due to differences across districts and to differences across schools within districts.
