  • Universal Access to a Quality Education:
    Research and Recommendations for the Elimination of Curricular Stratification

    Carol C. Burris, South Side High School, New York
    Kevin G. Welner, University of Colorado at Boulder
    Jennifer W. Bezoza, Children’s Voices

    This policy brief makes the case for schools across the country to put an end to policies that cast off students into unchallenging, low-track classrooms. The authors recommend a clear process for the phasing out of curricular stratification in grades K-10, beginning with the lowest track and granting meaningful access to AP and IB courses to all students. The brief includes model statutory language to implement its recommendations.

This is the third Think Twice review in recent weeks to examine the School Choice Demonstration Project’s Milwaukee reports. Previously, a review by Dr. Clive Belfield found that a report about the Milwaukee voucher program’s fiscal impact offers valuable insights but also questioned the report’s findings regarding fiscal benefits and noted that the report omits some important factors essential to a more complete analysis. And a review by Dr. Gregory Camilli of a report about the Milwaukee voucher program’s competitive effects raised a number of questions about the report’s statistical methods, ultimately concluding that any positive effect of competition is very small, if it exists at all.

Clive Belfield’s review can be found at:

Gregory Camilli’s review can be found at:
