Glossary of Education
- Magnet Project
- A magnet project is generally pursued by a school district to improve racial diversity within each school of the district. When schools are considered equivalent in the education they offer, families may gravitate toward the most geographically convenient location; however, such trends can lead to racial segregation. By offering a school that is specialized in a particular type of education or discipline, students will be attracted to the institution for reasons other than student body demographics, in theory.
