School Desegregation and Black Teacher Employment
NBER Working Paper No. 25990
---- Acknowledgments ----
I am very grateful to Elizabeth Cascio, Ben Denckla, Nora Gordon and Sarah Reber for making student desegregation and Title I funding data available, and to Mark Colas, Jason Fletcher, John Heywood and seminar participants at Emory University, Middlebury College, Montana State University, the University of Oregon, the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, Williams College and the 2018 NBER Summer Institute for helpful comments. My interest in this topic was motivated in part by an episode of Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History podcast, to whom I am also grateful.
