School Choice in America 2011: Educational Opportunity Reaches New Heights. Backgrounder. No. 2597
Burke, Lindsey M.; Sheffield, Rachel
Heritage Foundation
2011 has been a milestone year for school choice, setting the bar high for state legislatures across the country to increase families' educational options. What began with a crucial re-authorization of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program continued with 12 states creating or expanding school choice options. The movement toward educational freedom in 2011 was unprecedented; state after state moved away from the government's public education monopoly and toward policies that put power in the hands of parents, and educational opportunity in the grasp of children.
