Lesson 1 Summary

Key Points:

  • School choice gives parents the opportunity to choose the type of school or supplementary program their child attends in order to best meet their child’s needs.
  • School choice options vary by state and community.
  • In order for military families to take full advantage of their choice options, they need to be informed about the options available in their particular community.
  • Variations among school choice options can impact how a student meets curriculum and graduation requirements and should be shared with families.
