Court-ordered Busing and Housing Prices: The Case of Pasadena and San Marino
In 1970, the Federal District Court ordered that no school in the Pasadena School District would be allowed to open with a â€œmajority minority population.?To comply with this order, Pasadena began busing many of its minority students to other within-district schools with smaller minority populations. This article will examine the effect of this integration policy on housing prices, using home sales data gathered from within the Pasadena and San Marino Unified School Districts (busing was not implemented in the latter district). The results indicate that the busing policy does not have a significant effect on the house prices.
