The International School Choice and Reform Conference (ISCRC) is an academic conference that gathers scholars who study various forms of school choice, systemic reform, and educational innovation. This includes scholarship on how school choice is enacted, the mechanisms that structure school choice programs, and both the individual and systemic outcomes of school choice and reform. To the greatest extent possible, ISCRC includes multiple perspectives. Some of the research is more supportive of various forms of school choice while other research has a more critical stance. Still others favor one form of choice while opposing other forms of choice. Conference participants are connected by the goal of using quality research to shed light on how school choice and reform policies actually work.
