School Choice Programs in the Fifty States. Research Report No. 7. Enrollment Options for Students with Disabilities.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
School choice policies allow parents to exercise an active role in selecting the school or educational program their children attend. This report reviews development of school choice policies at the national and state levels. Rationales for school choice programs and key components of these programs are noted. Eight types of school choice programs implemented within state education systems are described: magnet schools, postsecondary enrollment programs, drop-out prevention programs, intradistrict open enrollment, interdistrict open enrollment, voucher programs, tuition agreement programs, and charter schools. For each state, types of choice programs that are operating within that state are identified and outlined. (Contains 12 references.) (JDD)
