Ep 1: The Private School Landscape report

Hosted byEdChoice|

Listen as EdChoice Director of State Research and Policy Analysis Drew Catt discusses a new research report concluding that school choice programs across America have not delivered increases in private school enrollment or capacity over the past two decades.

The Private School Landscape: The Effects of School Choice on Student Capacity and Composition also looked at the effects of choice on racial diversity in private schools in choice and non-choice states. Contrary to what critics often allege, the report found that private school choice programs have not caused more racial segregation at the school level.

This is the first in our new series of EdChoice Chats, short podcasts that are intended to help parents, educators and advocates understand the effects of educational choice on our schools, students and states.
