Professor Junia Howell's research featured in PittWire

Professor Junia Howell's research on how compounding privileges in white, affluent neighborhoods drives urban inequality is featured in a recnt PittWire profile.  Howell's research finds that children who grow up in extremely poor neighborhoods tend to have worse educational outcomes than their wealthier peers. Sociologists and policymakers who study this phenomenon have long relied on foundational research from the 1980s that focused on these disadvantaged neighborhoods and children, largely ignoring the other half of the societal continuum: affluent neighborhoods.  Please click the link in the above "News" bar for more information on Professor Howell's research and further links in the feature to Atlantic's CityLab and NPR coverage of this work.
