A Think Twice Review of:

Choice and Education across the States

Think Twice - Apr 29, 2008

Publisher/Think Tank - The Heartland Institute

Author(s) -

This report assigns letter grades to states based on how extensive the state’s school choice system is.

Reviewer(s) - Wendy Chi, University of Colorado at Boulder

Chi concludes that this report offers little or no useful information for policy makers. The report asserts, based on a faulty use of past research, that an increase in school choice will strengthen accountability and improve student achievement. It awards most states low grades, reflecting a desire for more school choice throughout the nation.
