Knowlton Planning Project Profiled by Columbus Dispatch

Professor Rachel Kleit and Assistant Professor Jason Reece's Move to Prosper project has been profiled by the Columbus Dispatch.

Move to Prosper, a project involving Professor Rachel Kleit and Assistant Professor Jason Reece of City and Regional Planning, was profiled in the Columbus Dispatch.

Jason Reece, an Ohio State assistant professor in city and regional planning, is on the Move to Prosper advisory board. He says living in unsafe neighborhoods, sending children to poor-performing schools and constantly worrying about finances creates “chronic stress [for mothers] and the persistent fear of what could happen to their children. Once the families were stabilized, we saw improvements in education [and] in income.”
