School choice is a common sense idea that gives all parents the power and freedom to choose their child's education, while encouraging healthy competition among schools and other institutions to better serve students' needs and priorities. It is a public policy that allows a parent/guardian or student to choose a district, charter, or private school, regardless of residence and location. This publication is the authoritative handbook on school choice programs in the United States. It is designed to serve as both an introduction for those new to educational choice, and as an indispensable guide for those who have been working for decades to achieve universal school choice.
