A Successful Parents' Choice Program.
Yanofsky, Saul M.; Young, Laurette
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n6 p476-79 Feb 1992
The Controlled Parents' Choice Program in White Plains, New York, successfully combines equity and racial balance concerns with parental opportunity to select a child's elementary school. The program's success hinges on expressed parental preference, guaranteed priority for siblings, residential preference, formal deadlines, a lottery, waiting lists, and transfer requests. Results and benefits are detailed. (MLH)
