A Parent’s Guide to School Choice: Education Options for Arizona Families
Arizona is the national leader in school choice; the state has a broader range of school options than anywhere else in the country. Unfortunately, many families simply don’t know how to take advantage of these opportunities. 87,000 Arizona children, or almost 10 percent, are languishing in failing schools. It is clear that more needs to be done to increase the involvement of parents in choosing the best education option for their children. One way to do that is to ensure that the Arizona Department of Education informs parents about the programs at their fingertips. The Goldwater Institute has released A Parent’s Guide to School Choice: Education Options for Arizona Families, which provides a comprehensive guide to Arizona families of all the school choice programs available to them, including other families’ experiences and how to apply.
