Key Elements of Selected Educational Choice Programs: A Telephone Survey Summary. Final Report.
Oliver, Kathryn; And Others
Key elements of selected educational choice programs in 11 states are summarized in this report. Information is provided on the type and level of program, number and age of students served, program costs and revenue sources, staffing, evaluation methods, and length of time in existence. Educational trends, barriers to program expansion, the relationship to national goals, and average annual state expenditure per pupil are also examined. Methodology involved a telephone survey of selected state programs, with a focus on those addressed by state policy. Three broad categories of programs were identified--interstate, interdistrict, and intradistrict. Within these broad categories, three additional descriptors were named: open enrollment, postsecondary enrollment, and alternative/magnet schools. Information is provided on 24 choice programs in the following 11 states--Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia. Included are a state program matrix, an overview page for each state, and brief program descriptions. The final section describes four local choice programs in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Cupertino, California; San Jose, California; and Portland, Oregon. (LMI)
