School Choice Presentation

Over the years, economists have observed that some school choice programs often enhance property values. Neighborhood improvement was not the purpose of these choice programs, but neighborhoods improved spontaneously. Now real estate developers and civic leaders have begun to search for school choice programs that are specifically designed to reduce concentrated poverty, combat urban sprawl, and enhance the quality of life outside the school-house walls. Dr. Danielsen reviews the state of current research and discusses optimal features for choice programs that enhance the quality of urban life.
