"Back in the 1990s, the federal government tried an unusual social experiment: It offered thousands of poor women in big-city public housing a chance to live in more affluent neighborhoods. ... The experiment was initially aimed at researching whether moving impoverished families to more prosperous areas could improve employment or schooling.
