USA: Trends in the Use of School Choice: 1993 to 1999

http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2003031

This report examines data from three cycles of the National Household Education Surveys Program (1993, 1996, and 1999) in which children`s parents were asked if their children attended their assigned public schools, public schools that they had chosen, private schools that are church-related, or private schools that are not church-related, and about their satisfaction and involvement with those schools. The report provides information about trends in the use and users of public schools of choice and private schools, and outcomes of these choices-parent satisfaction and involvement, and students` plans for postsecondary education. The percentage of children enrolled in public, assigned schools for 1st through 12th grades decreased from 80 percent in 1993 to 76 percent in 1999. The decrease in public, assigned school enrollment was almost completely offset by an increase from 11 to 14 percent in public, chosen school enrollment. Enrollment in private schools remained relatively stable in each year. Link to PDF download 393 KB
