The Effects of School Choice on Capacity and Composition
In The Private School Landscape, we test the longstanding theory that over time more school choice programs would create increased competition and more private school capacity in the states where they are in effect. Further, we wanted to know if more access to educational choice programs would increase private school enrollment. Finally, we wanted to find out whether, as critics often allege, school choice has caused increased racial segregation among private school populations. The Private School Landscape addresses these questions and makes recommendations for how states can spur additional growth, both in school enrollment and capacity.
