2012 ABCs of School Choice

April 3, 2012

The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice recently released the 2012 edition of its annual ABCs of School Choice, the comprehensive guide to school choice programs throughout the United States.

  • The publication, first released in 2003, provides in-depth profiles of each voucher, education savings account, tax-credit scholarship, and individual tax credit or tax deduction program in the United States.
  • These profiles include program summaries, information on scholarship values, student eligibility and participation, and the latest statistics and trends.
  • The ABCs also includes new sections providing information on current program rules and regulations, an update on legal developments, a graphic digest of statistics, and a list of resources and contacts for school choice advocates in every state.

The ABCs of School Choice is designed to serve as both an introduction for those new to educational choice, and as a guide for those who have been working for decades to achieve universal school choice.
