Parental Choice of School Characteristics: Estimation Using State-Wide Data
This article attempts to proxy parental alienation from public schools across states in order to obtain measures of quality dispersion and of the educational characteristics to which families are most sensitive. The indicator of alienation is the choice of private schooling. The task is to explain why the likelihood of such choice varies so widely across states. Of the hypotheses tested, that of teacher strike records is strongly significant in the expected direction. Other novel findings concern the share of administration, teacher memberships of the National Education Association, and the proportion of whites to nonwhites in the population.
