Singer, Jeremy – Journal of School Choice, 2021
I use the definition of "populism as a discursive frame" to consider the extent to which the politics of school choice in the United States have been populist. This analysis offers a novel way to understand how political actors have forged coalitions to support school choice and suggests how they may remake their positions in an evolving…

In 2019, the right-wing Government of Chile was expected to implement a substantial reform regarding student assignment to schools that had been passed by the previous administration (the School Inclusion Law).

Maranto, Robert – Journal of School Choice, 2021
Inherently, populism questions elite values and expertise; thus, populists oppose and usually are opposed by elites. Here, I discuss how American Political Science treats elitism, pluralism, and populism, relying heavily on the U.S. Founders' constitutional approaches limiting the power of factions to impose social and political uniformity.…

Scafidi, Benjamin; Wearne, Eric – Journal of School Choice, 2021
In this article, we explore why American populists may be attracted to the educational choice.

Ray, Brian D.; Shakeel, M. Danish; Worth, Fred; Bryant, Valerie – Journal of School Choice, 2021
Homeschooling has witnessed an upsurge in the United States since the movement for school choice gained momentum in the 1990s. Most research on homeschooling has been on non-representative samples of median-income white Americans, making it difficult for policymakers to accept its reliability. In addition, homeschoolers now include other ethnic…

Crouch, Michael; Nguyen, Tuan D. – Journal of School Choice, 2021
While prior research has examined teachers in rural schools and teachers in charter schools, there has been little research into the intersection of rural and charter schools.

Jochim, Ashley; Lavery, Lesley – Journal of School Choice, 2021
For both proponents and critics alike, among the most salient features of charter schooling today is their freedom from collective bargaining agreements that shape staffing and work rules and limit school administrators' discretion. This is changing in some states where a small but growing number of charter schools are unionized. How collective…

I calculate cost-effectiveness by dividing the Accountability Report Card score for each school by the…

Asbury, Kathryn; Wai, Jonathan – Journal of School Choice, 2020
This paper introduces a literature from outside the field of education research and policy that we argue has potential to enhance both policy and practice.
