From Research to Action: Housing Mobility and Dayton's Bluff Achievement Plus Elementary School.

O'Connell, Thomas and John Vaughn.

Dayton's Bluff Achievement Plus Elementary School reflects many of the changes in the surrounding Dayton's Bluff neighborhood, which has been plagued by a severe employment and housing crisis since the mid-1980s. Lack of employment opportunities and poor housing stock both contribute to one of the most serious problems facing low-income urban schools: student mobility. This article explores a joint effort by Dayton's Bluff Community Council, Dayton's Bluff Elementary, and the East Side COPC to combat the problem of student mobility through research, coalition building, and organizing. The article discusses the success of these efforts through the end of the 2000-2001 school year and considers future challenges that remain to be addressed in the Dayton's Bluff Neighborhood. This article is part of a special issue of the CURA Reporter devoted to the East Side COPC program.
