The Impacts of Publicly Funded School Choice Options on Income and ELL Disparities in Early Elementary School

This project will examine contemporary, nationally representative data to pursue three primary objectives: 1) detect key selection characteristics that predict children's enrollment in public traditional or public elementary schools of choice; 2) identify the magnitude of disparities in early developmental trajectories as a function of school type, controlling for propensity scores of public school type selection; and 3) examine whether alternative public school choice options (open enrollment, magnet or charter) moderate income and ELL disparities in academic, executive functioning, and social skills trajectories compared to children's growth in regular (traditional) public schools.
