The Educational Marketplace: Toward a Theory of Family Choice in Schooling.
Sonnenfeld, David
Families choose schools; and they choose programs within schools. Yet the processes, contingencies, and outcomes of families' choices of schooling have not been systematically examined. In this paper, the social science literature on families' choices of schooling is reviewed. Treating this choice as a special case of consumer choice, the paper discusses the range of options in schooling, the processes of choosing schooling, and the effects of these choices. Some suggestions for further research on families' choices of schooling are made. (Author)
