Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy present
"Fifty Years since the Coleman Report: Rethinking the Relationship between Schools and Inequality"
Doug Downey is Professor of Sociology at Ohio State. Downey's research concerns social stratification, education, and family. He is currently developing a new method for measuring school effectiveness that isolates school from non-school influences on learning. Downey is also testing explanations for racial/ethnic differences in school performance, exploring the early determinants of inequality among young children, and assessing the consequences of family structure for children’s well-being.
