Mothers are more likely than fathers to favor school diversity and neighborhood schools, according to a new study on gender and school assignment conducted by N.C. State University. The study also found that mothers are more likely to be concerned about challenges, danger and uncertainties of school assignments. And they were more fearful that a school reassignment would negatively affect their child’s learning or friendships. Toby Parcel, sociology, and Andy Taylor, political science, featured.
