The eighth annual International School Choice and Reform Conference (ISCRC) will bring together academics, legal and policy experts, researchers, policy specialists, practitioners, and organization leaders from around the world who are interested in school choice and education reform. The conference will be held January 17-20, 2020 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel.
The focus of the conference is on how school choice practice and policy shapes education, including the roles of various stakeholders, such as parents and teachers. Of particular interest are the connections between choice, autonomy, equity, and effective education. The conference encourages both empirically-based papers that use strong quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methodological approaches and theoretical and philosophical analyses connected to choice and policy analysis of law and regulations concerning school choice and reform. We particularly welcome presentations that are critical as well as supportive of school choice. Papers focusing on school choice and reform in an international perspective are highly encouraged.
Conference submissions can take one of three forms: single paper submissions, symposia or panels, and critical conversations and networking sessions, selected through this open call for submissions and a peer review process.
We strongly encourage submission of proposals that take advantage of the diversity of conference participants, both internationally and by sector, and that stimulate broad policy rather than technical discussions. Examples might include:
