Portfolio of School Choice
States have long been working to provide families with educational options, but the COVID-19 crisis has elevated the need for families to have different schooling options at their disposal. This series of briefs covers district-level open enrollment, charter schools, private schools, homeschooling, virtual schooling, dual enrollment (high school and college), and rural education. Each brief discusses the financial implications of that educational choice and includes a summary of trends in participation and outcomes. Each brief concludes with a set of best practices to support policymakers in designing school choice policies.
