A Think Twice Review of:
Choice and Education across the States
Think Twice - Apr 29, 2008
Publisher/Think Tank - The Heartland Institute
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.
