CONFERENCE SUMMARY
The International Conference on School Choice and Reform (ICSCR) is sponsored by the Journal of School Choice and is hosted by the National Institute for Educational Options at Nova Southeastern University and in cooperation with the European Association for Education Law and Policy.  ICSCR brings together researchers, policy specialists, practitioners, and organizational leaders concerned with educational freedom in its various forms: (1) the freedom of families to choose schools that they think are best for their children, (2) the freedom of educators to create and maintain distinctive schools, and also  (3) the sensitive role of government to promote such freedoms while ensuring that every child receives an adequate education. 

ICSCR provides a framework for assessing evidence on the effects of different forms of educational choice, including magnet and charter public schools, controlled choice and inter-district transfer programs, vouchers, tuition tax credits, homeschooling, on-line education and the direct public funding of private schools provided in many countries.  We are interested in how educational freedom relates to school effectiveness for diverse groups of students.

Deliberately designed for around 120 participants to encourage discussion, ICSCR brings together researchers and policy specialists from many different countries to stimulate new thinking and foster international collaboration.  By drawing representatives of governments into that discussion, ICSCR also encourages the development and implementation of effective and equitable policies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
