"It's Hard to Separate Choice from Transportation"

Perspective on Student Transportation Policy in Three Choice-Rich School Districts
October 25, 2018

Abstract

The rapid proliferation of school choice policies over the past three decades has resulted in significant changes in the number and type of schooling options available to students. As school districts have adopted school choice policies, however, new questions have arisen about school transportation policies. This report explores the challenges and costs associated with school transportation in a choice-rich environment and examines how transportation policy can influence the local school choice landscape.
