Barrows, Samuel; Cheng, Albert; Peterson, Paul E.; West, Martin R. – Journal of School Choice, 2019

Hamlin, Daniel – Journal of School Choice, 2018
Providing improved educational options for low-income African American families has been one of the primary objectives of the charter school movement.

Sude, Yujie; DeAngelis, Corey A.; Wolf, Patrick J. – Journal of School Choice, 2018
Since school voucher funds are public, policymakers fiercely debate how those funds should be spent. A goal of many decision-makers is to ensure that every private school option is "high-quality" through program accountability regulations. Private schools, however, decide whether to participate in a private school choice program and…

New Zealand legislation removing school zones radically reshaped school choice, resulting in increased school stratification from parental choice frequently driven by social factors such as ethnic makeup of the school community.

D'Agostino, T. J. – Journal of School Choice, 2018
An analysis of the jurisprudence related to religious schools and public funding, grounded in the interpretation of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, suggests that religious charter schools may be constitutionally permissible.

Markus, Johanna J.; de Kock, A.; de Muynck, A.; Bertram-Troost, Gerdien D.; Barnard, Marcel – Journal of School Choice, 2018
