From School Choice to Educational Choice. Education Outlook. No. 3
Hess, Frederick M.; Meeks, Olivia; Manno, Bruno V.
American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
In recent decades, many calls for transformative change in American schooling have advocated school choice. Yet these calls themselves have too often accepted the orthodoxies of the nineteenth-century schoolhouse. In the new book "Customized Schooling: Beyond Whole-School Reform" (Harvard Education Press, 2011), the authors worked with the Walton Family Foundation's Bruno V. Manno to offer a more promising vision for twenty-first-century, choice-centered reform. This "Outlook" highlights six key aspects of systemic reform. These are: (1) The Critical Role of Data; (2) Not Just Choice, but Informed Choice; (3) Technology and the Rise of Virtual Schooling; (4) Customized Education for Teachers and Administrators; (5) Tools for Customization; and (6) Breaking the Whole-School Funding Assumption. (Contains 3 notes.)
