A short synopsis of five regional meetings on school choice and follow-up activities is offered in this report. The meetings were held in fall 1989 in East Harlem, New York; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota; Charlotte, North Carolina; Denver, Colorado; and Richmond, California. Three sections of the report provide a review of choice activities that have occurred since the meetings, a description of types of school choice, and a discussion of school choice and restructuring. A fourth section examines issues relevant to school choice, such as increasing the scope of choice, maintaining a racial balance, and providing equal access to transportation and information.
