Concerns over the resegregation of public schools are consistent with research showing academic and non-academic benefits of integrated schooling dating back to the Coleman Report. This paper seeks to contribute to the literature on school segregation and the literature on successful aging by assessing whether attending school where most other students are of a different race is positively associated with well-being in late adulthood, as predicted by human capital theory and perpetuation theory. Analyses of three cohorts in the Health and Retirement Study show that “race-discordant” schooling is positively associated with educational attainment, wealth, and social engagement among older adults. We also find that the human capital benefits of integration are greatest for minority older adults, while the positive association with social engagement is only present for white and Hispanic older adults. We conclude that concerns over the resegregation of public schools should extend to the significance of integrated schooling for successful aging and population health.
