Choice Provisions in No Child Left Behind
Student Achievement and School Accountability Conference
Text (slide 22):
State laws prohibiting choice
- The only type of State law that can limit or prevent the choice option is a law that prohibits public school choice through restrictions on public school assignments or the transfer of students from one public school to another public school.
- Other laws, such as those that mandate specific student-teacher ratios, may make providing choice options more difficult, but may not be used to prohibit parental choices.
