Student transportation: The next frontier for addressing inequity in school choice
from Education Week
The promise of greater access to better educational options that match students' and parents' preferences is a common refrain used to promote school choice policies in the U.S., which have rapidly expanded over the past 30 years. Today, 3 million students are enrolled in public charter schools (6 percent of all K-12 public school students), up from less than half a million in 2000, and there are charter school laws on the books in 43 states and the District of Columbia. What is more, 46 states have inter- or intradistrict enrollment policies in at least some of their school districts, allowing families some degree of choice over which public school to attend.
