Expanding the Education Universe: A Fifty-State Strategy for Course Choice
Brickman, Michael
Thomas B. Fordham Institute
After twenty years of expanding school-choice options, state leaders, educators, and families have a new tool: course choice, a strategy for students to learn from unconventional providers that might range from top-tier universities or innovative community colleges to local employers, labs, or hospitals. In "Expanding the Education Universe: A Fifty-State Strategy for Course Choice," Fordham's Michael Brickman outlines policy questions and options to weigh when designing course-choice programs, including issues of student eligibility, course providers, funding, quality control, and accountability. Course Choice in Louisiana is appended.
