The ABCs of School Choice is a comprehensive guide to every private school choice program in America.

It includes:

  • at-a-glance definitions for all different school choice program types
  • longitudinal charts showing the growth of private school choice nationwide since 1990
  • private school choice program profiles for every single state with education savings accounts (ESAs), school vouchers, tax-credit scholarships and/or individual education tax credits or deductions

School choice program profiles include:

  • official program names, enacted dates, launched dates and quick description
  • up-to-date breakdowns of student funding and eligibility as defined in statute
  • actionable recommendations—curated by EdChoice’s team of experts—that will ultimately improve the efficacy of each program.
  • program fast facts
  • governing statues
  • program rules and regulations
  • charts showing program participation numbers over time
  • unique short links to program pages on EdChoice’s website, which are kept updated in real time all year long.

The best feature for policymakers in 2018?

We organized school choice program profiles by their color-coded program type, rather than alphabetically by state to make it easier for policymakers to compare their states’ programs with other similar policies across the country. Comparing Arizona’s ESA to Tennessee’s ESA, for instance, is quick and convenient.

Need to find all of your state’s programs quickly? Reference our State Index.

And once you’ve taken a deep dive into the program profiles, don’t forget our ABCs also feature legal history and tables that sort programs by regulatory categories.

That’s it!

(Hey, we warned you it was comprehensive.)
