The panel, which worked with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates and Annie E. Casey foundations, examined how educational options could be constructed to influence positive outcomes in four basic areas:

  • Benefits to children whose parents exercise school choice;
  • Benefits (or at least no harm) to families that do not exercise choice;
  • Continued pursuit of the national commitment to equal opportunity and desegregated schools; and
  • Advancement of common democratic values and social cohesion.
