The Research On School Choice

School choice advocates claim that competition among schools will force all of them to improve in order to attract “customers.” Yet three decades of various choice experiments have not lived up to their supporters’ promises. In this webinar, Patte Barth, director of NSBA’s Center for Public Education, will review the evidence to date on the impact of school choice in its various forms – public (charter and magnet schools, inter-/intra-district transfers); private (private schools, vouchers, homeschooling); and virtual schools both private and public. Participants will also hear what lessons they can apply to help assure every public school is a good choice for students.
