Welcome to the ECS State Policies for
School Choice Database
This database contains information about
the state policies for school choice in each state. School
choice as a descriptor takes on several meanings, and narrow
use of the word (e.g., assuming that school choice equals only
open enrollment or vouchers) often confuses the debate about school
choice. In this database, we use school choice as
a broad descriptor covering many different ideas, including open
enrollment, charter schools, vouchers, tax credits and tax deductions
and dual/concurrent enrollment.
From this database, you can generate profiles of the state policies
for school choice in individual states, create comparisons of
specific types of state policies for school choice across several
states and view predetermined reports on state policies for school
