The new Brookings index on school choice is interesting and worth a look but as I go through it two things seem to jump out. First, despite the rhetoric in the public square there still isn’t a great deal of real choice in education. And second, the index seems to reward places (relatively speaking) that have limited choices but still do all the things you should do (information, transportation etc…nonetheless). That’s like having an incredible restaurant with easy valet parking, wonderful fresh food, great service, and lovely ambiance – but that can only seat four people a night. Nice but limited.
