Choice: A Case Study in Education and Entrepreneurship

CSPL 341
Spring 2015
Section: 01  
Certificates: The Study of Education

In this seminar, we will investigate an increasingly popular reform movement--choice--to better understand what happens when educators act more like entrepreneurs in competing for students, how families navigate both schooling and housing markets, and the outcomes of recent policy innovations. Drawing from the disciplines of history, sociology, and government, we will compare and contrast choice models that have been promoted by charter schools, magnet schools, and move-to-opportunity housing experiments. Teams of student researchers will conduct quantitative analyses of choice data and qualitative interviews with parents and stakeholders in Hartford.
