We know that...
- Urban sprawl has negative effects:
- A primary driver of sprawl is dysfunctional schools that force middle-income families out of cities
- Charter schools, magnet schools, private school scholarships, and other school choice programs have shown promise in overcoming the current dysfunctional assigned-school model
- Public education delivery should be reformed so that all socioeconomic groups have choices that do not require moving out of the city
- For jobs, economic development, the environment, some school choice is good and more school choice is better.
