Merry, Michael S. – Journal of School Choice, 2020
In this essay I ask what educational justice might require for children with autism in educational settings where "inclusion" entails not only meaningful access, but also where the educational setting is able to facilitate a sense of belonging and further is conducive to well-being.

Mann, Bryan – Journal of School Choice, 2020
There are two competing understandings on how school organizations behave when faced with competition. One is they respond to competitive pressure with innovation.

Harris, Julie C. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Although magnet schools were created in the 1960s to integrate schools, their policy, legal, and demographic context has changed dramatically, making it more difficult for them to integrate. As it becomes more difficult for magnet schools to integrate, other benefits, such as improved student achievement, become more important. At the same time,…

DeAngelis, Corey A.; Flanders, Will – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Few evaluations have focused on the supply and demand within the education marketplace in a school choice environment.

Magness, Phillip; Surprenant, Chris W. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
While the primary focus of ethical discussions involving school voucher programs has been on the relationship--and possible disconnect--between educational outcomes and profit motivations, recently this focus has shifted to the relationship between consumer sovereignty and racial segregation. A growing critique of private voucher and charter…
