The Heritage Foundation Issue Brief No. 4173

Lindsey M. Burke

March 18, 2014

Abstract: Over the past decade, a growing body of empirical research examining the impact of school choice has emerged.  Education researcher Greg Forster, PhD, conducted an analysis of all existing empirical evaluations of school choice programs to date.  According to Forster, 11 out of 12 random assignment studies found that choice improved the academic outcomes of participants; not a single evaluation found that school choice had a negative impact on academic outcomes.
