School choice is a broad phrase that includes public, magnet, charter and private schools; home schooling, schools of choice or inter-district (open enrollment) schools; and vouchers – which are not allowed in Michigan. The most common forms of school choice in the state are charter schools and inter-district schools of choice. The issue of school choice – a topic that has become subject to greater scrutiny since the appointment of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education – resonates strongly in Detroit, which is home to the second-largest concentration of charter schools in the country, behind only New Orleans.
