Abstract
By examining the residential and student populations in East Los Angeles and SouthEast Los Angeles, it is possible to identify the local housing politics that affect student success. Analysis of high mobility and displacement of students is indicative of the range of students' lack of academic opportunity. High mobility, displacement, safety concerns, and academic failure are attributed to exclusionary zoning, expulsive zoning, mixed-income housing and schooling, and tax increment funding. In addition to examining the effects of each policy on student success and levels of opportunity, it is necessary to examine the recommendations and limitations for amending the state of housing policies in Los Angeles County, and thus, the changes to students' academic trajectories.
