Does Choice Lead to Racially Distinctive Schools? Charter Schools and Household Preferences.
Weiher, Gregory R.; Tedin, Kent L.
Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, v21 n1 p79-92 2002
Analyzed the responses of Texas charter school households about school choice, comparing expressed preferences and actual behaviors. Results indicated that race was a good predictor of the choice that households made. Whites, Blacks, and Latinos transferred into charter schools where their groups comprised 11-14 percentage points more of the student body than the traditional public schools they were leaving. (SM)
