Study finds inequities in schools’ zone plans

As Boston school officials propose new ways to assign students to schools, an analysis last week by a Harvard professor suggests that the plans are less fair than the current system and would make it even harder for students in the poorest neighborhoods to get into the city’s best schools.

The report suggested that although students who live in different parts of Boston now have unequal access to the city’s best schools, the proposals would increase that inequity and at least one would create new school zones without any high-quality schools.
