School choice is one of the most cutting-edge, innovative reform movements impacting our nation’s education systems and public policy centers at this moment. The idea at the heart of school choice is to empower parents to choose the best educational option for their child—regardless of income or zip code. By enabling families to choose from a variety of options, school choice empowers parents as the consumer—making schools accountable to them, rather than being accountable to politicians, bureaucrats and union leaders. In short, school choice revamps the education system in a way that puts the focus where it should—on the real needs of children, rather than the political interests of adults. There are many different forms of school choice, including scholarship and tax credit programs, charter schools, home schooling, online education, and more.
