Expanding Educational Opportunity through Choice and Competition

  • Author(s):
  • The Council of Economic Advisers

During the last 30 years, school choice programs have undergone dramatic expansion in the United States. These programs—organized at the Federal, State, or local level—share a common goal of expanding access to education options that exist alongside and ultimately improve public school options for primary and secondary education. Under a district public school (DPS) system, students are assigned to schools based on where they live, and the only form of school choice requires physically moving to an area with better schools for those families that can afford to do so. School choice programs have altered this landscape in fundamental ways by increasing competition in the school system and enhancing educational opportunities for all students, especially those from disadvantaged groups.
