Powers, Jeanne M.; Topper, Amelia Marcetti – Journal of School Choice, 2019
School choice researchers have used a range of measures to capture competition between schools, but few have assessed the relative utility of these different measures.

Harris, Julie C. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Although magnet schools were created in the 1960s to integrate schools, their policy, legal, and demographic context has changed dramatically, making it more difficult for them to integrate. As it becomes more difficult for magnet schools to integrate, other benefits, such as improved student achievement, become more important. At the same time,…

DeAngelis, Corey A.; Flanders, Will – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Few evaluations have focused on the supply and demand within the education marketplace in a school choice environment.

Magness, Phillip; Surprenant, Chris W. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
While the primary focus of ethical discussions involving school voucher programs has been on the relationship--and possible disconnect--between educational outcomes and profit motivations, recently this focus has shifted to the relationship between consumer sovereignty and racial segregation. A growing critique of private voucher and charter…

We review research on student-level impacts, public school response, parental decision-making,…

Effective educational leadership is essential for the success of schools and ultimately student achievement. The impact of school leadership may be even more pronounced in charter schools.

Scott, Michael R.; Marshall, David T. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
This article explores the importance of considering transportation mode when calculating commute time for a child's school choice options.

Spees, Lisa P. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Despite several charter schools specifically targeting improving students' noncognitive skills, the majority of charter school literature focuses on cognitive learning outcomes. Using behavioral measures as proxies for noncognitive outcomes, I find that North Carolina charter schools have no effect on tardiness or unexcused absences but are…

DeAngelis, Corey A. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
I employ a year and country-level fixed-effects analytical technique to examine how private schooling could impact national stability using five different measures. I examine 177 different countries across the globe from 1999 to 2014. Most importantly, this technique allows me to conduct a quasi-experimental analysis by controlling for otherwise…

Marks, Denton; Welsch, David M. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Over the past two decades homeschooling has become increasingly popular, but this educational alternative has lacked rigorous empirical evaluation because of data limitations.
