 Title: Race and School Quality Since Brown vs. Board of Education Authors: Krueger, Alan B.Boozer, MichaelWolkon, Shari Keywords: racehuman capitalschool qualitysegregationwages Issue Date: 1-Mar-1992 Citation: Brookings Papers on Economic Activity: Microeconomics, in Martin N. Bailey and Clifford Winston (eds.) 1992, pp. 269-326. Series/Report no.: Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 301 Abstract: This paper presents evidence on the quality of schooling by race and ethnic origin in the United States. Although substantial racial segregation across schools exists, the average pupil-teacher ratio is approximately the same for black and white students. Hispanic students, however, on average have l0 percent more students per teacher. Relative to whites, blacks and Hispanics are less likely to use computers at school and at work. The implications of these differences in school quality for labor market outcomes are examined. We conclude by examining reasons for the increase in the black-white earnings gap since the mid-1970s.
