This interactive web application produced by the Education Choice and Competition Index scores large school districts based on thirteen categories of policy and practice, exploring the critical role of school choice in the future of education reform.

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
  • Recognize leaders among school districts in the design and implementation of choice and competition systems

The 2015 ECCI web application is also accompanied by a written report in which results are summarized and discussed. The data presented is from 2015, with indexes from 2014, 2013 and 2012 also available.

Explore the interactive application and download the full report on the Brookings Institution website.
