EdChoice Policy Toolkit

EdChoice Policy Toolkit

As with all policies, policymakers crafting legislation to create a school choice program have to make numerous decisions about policy design: Who should be eligible? How should it be funded? How can we ensure accountability without too much red tape? Which state agency should have the responsibility of running or overseeing the program?

In the EdChoice Policy Toolkit, we summarize the main elements of educational choice policy design, discuss potential tradeoffs and make suggestions for designing policies that empower all families with educational opportunity.
