School Choice: Issues and Answers.
Randall, Ruth E.
State policymakers will want to make clear the intent of a policy on choice when they write their legislative bills. The purpose for the policy will help parents, students, educators, and the general public understand their action and the reasons for the action. This study discusses 11 issues included in legislative bills and gives a brief summary of the law on choice in 8 states: Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Ohio, Idaho, Washington, and Utah. Issues for which the legislators may provide direction include the following: (1) reasons for choosing another school, i.e., academics, athletics, performing arts, special education, other; (2) desegregation; (3) space; (4) timelines; (5) provision of transportation; (6) voluntary or required participation by district; (7) state aid and local levies in dollars; (8) information for parents and students; (9) counseling of parents and students; (10) evaluation and data collecting mechanisms; and (11) grievance board for parents.
