Moving Neighborhoods Versus Reforming Schools: A Canadian’s Perspective

Philip Oreopoulos, University of Toronto


The Moving to Opportunity (MTO) for Fair Housing demonstration provided a definitive opportunity to consider the often-wondered question of what would result from helping relocate low-income families away from some of the worst living conditions in the United States. I commend all those involved for the study’s extremely clever design, well-executed operation, and thorough data analysis. I hope the work helps further inspire government and academic collaboration to create demonstration projects to answer equally important policy questions.
