Catt, Andrew D.; Kristof, John M. – EdChoice, 2021
While public school enrollment has declined in recent years, Ohio has seen growth in other K-12 education sectors.

Community school enrollment declined from 2013-2014 to 2019-2020, and…

Lueken, Martin F. – EdChoice, 2021

McShane, Michael Q.; Shaw, Michael – EdChoice, 2020
Transportation, or the lack thereof, can be a huge barrier to families exercising choice. Simply because a state authorizes the creation of charter schools or grants vouchers to families looking to send their children to private schools doesn't mean that those children will actually be able to attend those schools. They have to be able to get…

Egalite, Anna J.; Catt, Andrew D. – EdChoice, 2020
As school choice options grow, it is helpful to test for indirect effects on non-choosers who are left behind in district-run schools.
