School Choice and Social Justice

Harry Brighouse (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Looks in detail at two existing school choice programmes, the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program, which distributes school vouchers to low‐income families, and the national choice program that has been in operation since 1988 in the UK. It evaluates them according to the criteria of justice elaborated in the previous chapters (the principle of autonomy and the principle of educational equality), showing that neither of them does well with respect to those criteria. The purpose is to identify what sorts of mechanisms cause them to do badly, and to illustrate that it is not choice but other features of the schemes that are to blame.
