The paper examines the subject of school choice. After quantifying what school choice is, the paper discusses whether this should be accepted by the legislature, by schools and by parents and whether it is the best decision for children. The paper further analyses how it affects the way children learn. A further question of whether school choice will result in needy children or children from minorities being segregated, as this could mean they attend schools with little funding and few opportunities, is addressed.

From the Paper:

"Choice is everywhere in American education" (School Choice Facts). When a person stops to think about school choice, he or she will realize that school choice is quite common to every parent. Parents decide where they want their children to go to school and move into the residential areas where those schools are located (School Choice Facts). Sometimes this means paying high costs of rent, but it is worth it to the parents. Some parents make the decision whether to send their children to private school. This means that parents decide the cost of the private school is worth paying fees, books, and other costs. Some parents decide to home school and mothers often decide not to work so they can teach their children at home. All of these involve school choice. School choice is not new. Different countries have tried programs similar to what the U.S. calls school choice."
