School Hopscotch: A Comprehensive Review of K–12 Student Mobility in the United States
This article provides an integrative review of the extant literature on K–12 student mobility in the United States. Student mobility is a widespread phenomenon with significant policy implications.Expand
The influence of school mobility and dropout rates on non-mobile students’ school engagement: a chicken-and-egg situation?
ABSTRACT Transferring to another school or leaving the educational system altogether has considerable consequences not only for the student who makes the decision to leave, but also for the studentsExpand
Neighborhood Violence, Peer Effects, and Academic Achievement in Chicago
Research shows that exposure to local neighborhood violence is associated with students’ behavior and engagement in the classroom. Given the social nature of schooling, these symptoms not only affectExpand
Measuring students' school context exposures: A trajectory-based approach.
It is shown that students' trajectories of exposure are related to their 8th grade achievement, even after controlling for point-in-time measures of school context, and draws on recent advances in finite mixture modeling to identify a series of distinct school context trajectories. Expand
Neighborhoods, Schools, and Academic Achievement: A Formal Mediation Analysis of Contextual Effects on Reading and Mathematics Abilities
Results indicate that school poverty is not a significant mediator of neighborhood effects during either developmental period, which suggests that neighborhood effects on academic achievement are largely due to mediating factors unrelated to school poverty. Expand
Effects of intradistrict school mobility and high student turnover rates on early reading achievement
ABSTRACT The primary aim of this study was to assess the relations between concurrent, cumulative, and contextual intradistrict school mobility and early reading achievement. LongitudinalExpand
School Choice, Student Mobility, and School Quality: Evidence from post-Katrina New Orleans
In recent decades, school choice policies predicated on student mobility have gained prominence as urban districts address chronically low-performing schools. However, scholars have highlightedExpand
The effects of closing urban schools on students’ academic and behavioral outcomes: Evidence from Philadelphia
Urban districts throughout the country are increasingly closing schools in response to declining enrollment and academic underperformance. We estimate the impact of public school closings inExpand
Student Mobility and Violent Crime Exposure at Baltimore City Public Elementary Schools
High levels of school mobility are a problem in many urban districts. Many of these same districts are also dealing with high rates of violent crime. In this study, we use 6 years (2010–2011 toExpand


Student Mobility and the Increased Risk of High School Dropout
A variety of evidence suggests that students in the United States change schools frequently. But there has been relatively little research that examines the educational consequences of studentExpand
Patterns of Urban Student Mobility and Local School Reform
Student mobility is a topic that frequently surfaces in discussions about the problems of urban schooling. Surprisingly, it tends to fade from the agenda as discussion turns toward reform initiativesExpand

Abstract This study reports early impacts on youth's outcomes from the Yonkers Project, a quasi-experimental study in which low-income Black and Latino families who resided in economically andExpand
The Company You Keep: Adolescent Mobility and Peer Behavior*
Residential mobility has been linked to a variety of problematic behaviors during adolescence, but the reasons for this association are not well understood. This analysis examines the relationshipExpand
The Causes and Consequences of Student Mobility.
Student mobility-students making nonpromotional school changes-is widespread in many schools and districts throughout the United States. Mobility not only can harm the students who change schools, itExpand
Impact of family relocation on children's growth, development, school function, and behavior.
After adjusting for other covariates, frequent family relocation was associated with an increased risk of children failing a grade in school and four or more frequently occurring behavioral problems. Expand
A Classroom Perspective on Student Mobility
Although nearly 1 in every 5 school-aged children moves each year in this country, there is little documentation about how that mobility affects classroom instruction. This examination of 21 classesExpand
Toward a More Appropriate Conceptualization of Research on School Effects: A Three-Level Hierarchical Linear Model
Two aspects of educational research--that children's learning is typically the object of inquiry and that this learning usually occurs in organizational settings of classrooms and schools--locateExpand
Disruption Versus Tiebout Improvement: The Costs and Benefits of Switching Schools
Most students change schools at some point in their academic careers, but some change very frequently and some schools experience a great deal of turnover. Many researchers, teachers, andExpand
Causal Inference for Time-Varying Instructional Treatments
The authors propose a strategy for studying the effects of time-varying instructional treatments on repeatedly observed student achievement. This approach responds to three challenges: (a) The yearlyExpand
