How Students Experience Competitive School Choice


GUEST: Kate Phillippo, Associate Professor of cultural and educational policy studies at Loyola University Chicago School of Education, author of Advisory in Urban High Schools: A Study of Expanded Teacher Roles and A Contest Without Winners: How Students Experience Competitive School Choice.


BACKGROUND: The debate over public schools and education policy can get really contentious. Most Americans disagree on how best to run a public school system, arguing over traditional schools versus charter schools, and with terms like "school choice" being bandied about.

Today we'll examine a specific type of school system in Chicago - a city where ninth graders can apply to the high school of their choice - just like they might for public universities.

Does this system work? How does it impact the very people who are supposed to benefit, namely students?
