Trends in the Use of School Choice: 1993 to 2007. Statistical Analysis Report. NCES 2010-004

National Center for Education Statistics
This report updates two previous reports: "Trends in the Use of School Choice: 1993 to 1999" (Bielick and Chapman 2003) and "Trends in the Use of School Choice: 1993 to 2003" (Tice et al. 2006). Using data from the National Household Education Survey (NHES) of the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), this report examines enrollment trends in public schools (assigned and chosen) and private schools (religious and nonsectarian), from 1993 to 2007, as well as the characteristics of students in these schools in 2007. Additionally, the report describes student enrollment in charter schools in 2007 and demographic characteristics of homeschooled students in 2007. The report also examines parents' satisfaction with and involvement in their children's schools. This report represents the third in a series of reports from NCES that use data from the NHES to analyze school choice. The data presented here on school choice have been collected in five administrations of the NHES starting in 1993, then again in 1996, 1999, 2003 and 2007. The report provides information on the following six topics: (1) Trends in the distribution of enrollment in public schools (assigned and chosen) and private schools (religious and nonsectarian) between 1993 and 2007; (2) Demographic characteristics of students enrolled in public schools (assigned and chosen) and private schools (religious and nonsectarian) in 2007; (3) Demographic characteristics of students enrolled in public charter schools in 2007; (4) Demographic characteristics of students who were homeschooled in 2007; (5) Demographic characteristics of students whose parents report there are public school choice options available in their district in 2003 and 2007; and (6) Associations between the kind of school a student attends and parental satisfaction with and involvement in that school between 1993 and 2007. Appendices include: (1) Technical Notes; (2) Standard Error Tables; and (3) Supplemental Table. (Contains 11 tables, 10 figures, and 23 footnotes.)
