Superintendents Respond to School Choice.
Graham, Michael W.; Ruhl, Max
School choice legislation initiatives and their impact on school choice at the local level are compared in this survey of over 1,000 superintendents in Minnesota, Iowa, and Arkansas. Provisions of state statutes for school choice implementation in Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska are briefly described. Survey findings indicate that school choice legislation has had little effect on enrollment or district funding and that a slight majority favor school choice implementation. An irony is that the superintendents expressed values similar to those held by opponents of school choice, agreeing that choice is another name for educational vouchers and that it encourages recruiting. Two tables are included. (LMI)
