Pusztai, Gabriella; Róbert, Péter; Fényes, Hajnalka – Journal of School Choice, 2023
In this study, we examine the features of school choice by comparing parental involvement between denominational and public schools. In Hungary, denominational schools reemerged after the fall of communism in 1989, and their share increased further after 2010. The survey data, we employ, refer to primary school children's parents and were focused…

Firmino, João; Guilherme, André; Leme, Afonso Câmara; Nunes, Luis Catela – Journal of School Choice, 2023
We evaluate the demand and supply side effects of a policy which cuts funding to a significant portion of publicly funded private classes in Portugal, "Contratos de Associação" (AC), in which students do not pay tuition fees and are under the same admission criteria as in Public Schools -- i.e., these private schools cannot select…

Clavel, Jose G.; Flannery, Darragh – Journal of School Choice, 2023
A common decision parents face is the choice of school for their children. In Ireland, somewhat uniquely in an international context, this choice includes a large number of state-funded single-sex schools, to the point that this can be considered a realistic option for many parents. Focusing on secondary-level education and using the PISA 2018…

Bokhove, Christian; Jerrim, John; Sims, Sam – Journal of School Choice, 2023
School inspections are a key component of the accountability system in many education systems, including England. The judgments and reports produced through these inspections are widely used by parents when they are choosing a school for their children. But should they be? This paper presents new evidence on this issue. We illustrate how parents…

Cannistrà, M.; Agasisti, T.; Olivanti, F. – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Voucher policies represent a market mechanism to support school choice, with the expected effect of stimulating competition among schools and, in turn, positively benefiting the educational outcomes. As the only Italian region adopting this policy to free private/public school choice, Lombardy is the subject of this study. In particular, we aim at…

We survey 137 charter school administrators and 129 board members and find that U.S. charter school internal controls are perceived to be relatively strong overall. However, board independence, board communication of internal control responsibilities to school personnel, lines of communication between the board and school personnel, and reporting…

Prieto, Lydia M.; Aguero-Valverde, Jonathan; Flacke, Johannes; van Maarseveen, Martin – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Schools' priorities in student selection constitute the basis for fairness in school admissions. We study the case where schools are active strategic players that rank their applicants in terms of priorities. A methodological framework is developed to examine the impact of the variation in the admission settings on the equality of opportunity in…

Luikart, Ben; Hall, Joshua C.; Martin, Joshua – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Tennessee passed voucher-style Education Savings Account (ESA) legislation in 2019. We analyze the roll call vote in the Tennessee House to better understand the role of constituent, legislator, and special interest influences on support for school choice. This is accomplished using a binary probit model with legislator vote as the dependent…

Using classroom-level data from nearly all California schools, we investigate whether Hispanic, Asian, Black, and Native students in grades K-5 are more likely to have a teacher of the same race at charter schools or traditional public schools in 2017-18, what school and student characteristics explain these differences, and how ethnoracial…

Price, Eric W.; Lee, Matthew H. – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Private school leaders consider the potential benefits of private school choice program participation against costs associated with program regulations. Rational Choice Theory suggests leaders in states with conditions related to greater likelihood of program passage may be less willing to accept such regulations. To test this theory, we merge…

Kristof, John M. – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Discourse around school choice often is divisive. Less understood is the effect polarization has within advocate groups. The Narrative Policy Framework (NPF) approach offers a systematic approach to understanding how political actors use narratives to affect policy debates. Because NPF assumes bounded relativity, the approach requires a theory of…
