Title :(Reminder) Seminar: School Choice in America: The Promise and the Proof (19 April 2018)
Body :
City University of Hong Kong Department of Public Policy School Choice in America: The Promise and the Proof Dr. Margaret (Macke) Raymond Founder and Director Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) Stanford University Date: 19 April 2018 Time: 4:00pm – 5:30pm Venue: B7516, (POL Multi-purpose Room), 7/F, Blue Zone, Yeung Kin Man Academic Building, City University of Hong Kong (Please use Life No. 8) Language: English Abstract: One of the fiercest debates in education policy today concerns the question of whether permitting families to choose their child’s school is a productive alternative to traditional methods of schooling. Schools that begin operations as choice schools operate under a different legislative and regulatory conditions, joining greater autonomy for the design and operation of schools with stronger accountability for success. Drawing on research from 2009 to the present, performance as measured by academic progress on annual accountability tests is compared and contrasted in multiple ways to see if choice schools provide superior education outcomes for the students they serve. The importance of organization characteristics, operating environments and policy factors in creating superior outcomes for students are estimated. The results provide key insights for policy makers concerned with equity and effectiveness of public schools. All are welcome! Enquiries: Ms. Kanas Lau Tel: 3442 7533 Email:
