Glenn, Charles L.
Twenty-four questions regarding school choice concerns are answered in this document, which advocates school choice in public schools for Massachusetts. The following issues are included: the rationale for school choice; drawbacks to currently available choice options; components of an effective choice plan; the definition and maintenance of common standards and accountability; the impact of choice on teaching; administration and transportation; parental decision-making information; and maintenance of racial balance. The elements of a public education system based on diversity and choice within individual school systems and state- or region-wide plans are described. The roles of the school board, superintendent, principal, and state government in school choice are also examined. (LMI)
