  • What is School Choice?

    The term “school choice” means parents have an additional opportunity to choose the schools their child will attend for an elementary and secondary education. Based on both state and federal laws, Connecticut public school choice programs are an opportunity to raise student achievement and to “reduce racial, ethnic and economic isolation” as described in the 1997 Enhancing Education Choices and Opportunities Act (Public Act 97-290).
