School Choice: Doing It the Right Way Makes a Difference - The National Working Commission on Choice in K-12 Education was established to explore how choice works and to examine how communities interested in the potential benefits of new school options could obtain them while avoiding choice's potential damage. In this report, the commission explores choice in terms of four key issues: benefits to children whose parents choose new schools; benefits to children whose families do not exercise choice; effects on the national commitment to equal opportunity and school desegregation; and advancement of social cohesion and common democratic values. (National Working Commission on Choice in K-12 Education, The Brookings Institution, November 2003)...
