Exploring the Relationship Between Historical Redlining and High School Educational Outcomes
Katie Costello Hindersman
The aim of this study is to examine the effects historical redlining has had on public high school education outcomes. Schools in areas that were redlined in the 1930s are still experiencing negative effects from it today. Public high schools in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, and Columbus were all matched up with their HOLC score based on address. Graduation rate, attendance rate, and performance index percent data from the Ohio Department of Education were also analyzed in comparison to the HOLC scores. Using quantitative data, I examined how lower-scoring historical redlining public schools compared to high schools placed in higher scoring areas. Through this data, it is shown how historical redlining can still have an influence on education outcomes today.
