Families, School Choice, and Democratic Iterations on the Right to Education and Freedom of Education in Finnish Municipalities
Varjo, Janne; Kalalahti, Mira; Silvennoinen, Heikki
Journal of School Choice, v8 n1 p20-48 2014
This article analyzes the ways in which the right to education and freedom of education are expressed in local school choice policies in Finland. We aim to discover the elements that form democratic iterations on the right to education and freedom of education by contrasting their manifestations in three local institutional spaces for parental school choice. We focus on different levels of structures and agents including national legislation, local spaces for school choice, municipal demographics, and the impact of socioeconomic status and institutional space for school choice on parental attitudes.
