The 2016 Education Choice and Competition Index

Teacher Jenna Rosenberg speaks to her first grade class at Walsh Elementary School in Chicago, Illinois

Exploring the critical role of school choice in the future of education reform, the Education Choice and Competition Index (ECCI) is an interactive web application that scores large school districts based on thirteen categories of policy and practice. The intent of the ECCI is to create public awareness of the differences among districts in their support of school choice, provide a framework for efforts to improve choice and competition, and recognize leaders among school districts in the design and implementation of choice and competition systems. The 2016 ECCI web application is also accompanied by a written report in which results are summarized and discussed.

The application below reflects data from 2016. If you would like to see how districts ranked in past years, you can visit the 201520142013 and 2012 indexes.
