Sound research has demonstrated consistently that school choice policies improve public school performance. More than 20 credible studies indicate school choice programs introduce more competition among all public and private schools, compelling them to work harder to attract and retain students. Not one empirical study has found that outcomes at public schools worsen as a result of school choice programs, and numerous studies have found that they improve over time.
