Research conducted by Assistant Professor Sarah Winchell Lenhoff, Associate Professor Ben Pogodzinski, and Professor Michael Addonizio — which focused on demographic shifts in student populations since the passage of Proposal A — was referenced in the Bridge magazine article, "School choice, metro Detroit’s new white flight." The Educational Leadership and Policy Studies faculty members “examined U.S. Census and state school enrollment data. They found that the 10 school districts that took in the highest number of Detroit students since school choice began saw hundreds of local students leave their districts. And those who left moved to schools with a higher percentage of white students.”
