School Choice

There are two general categories of school choice programs: public and private. Public choice options provide parents with education choices in the public school sector and include open enrollment, magnet schools and charter schools. Private choice programs use public dollars to fund education options in the private sector, often at private schools. These programs include vouchers, education saving accounts and scholarship tax credits.

The following resources capture state policy trends, examples and other contextual information important for anyone working on school choice issues.
