In January, the Alliance for School Choice (ASC) in Washington, D.C., released its School Choice Yearbook 2011-12.  ASC's annual award-winning yearbook is a compendium of the nation's most-accurate data on school-voucher and scholarship tax-credit programs, an analysis of trends and information regarding school choice, a directory of the accountability provisions and requirements for each program, and a chronicle of the past year's choice-related events and activities.

Its sixth annual publication tells how 2011 was truly "The Year of School Choice."  Thousands of children all across the country benefited from a renewed commitment to providing disadvantaged children with educational options, and the stage is set for even greater progress in the months ahead.

"Historians will remember 2011 as the year when school choice became a major part of mainstream education reform, an important turning point in the continuing fight to ensure educational equality for all children," according to ASC's yearbook.

"Six states, the U.S. Congress, and a local school board passed legislation creating new school choice programs. In all, seven new school choice programs were enacted and 11 programs were strengthened, expanded, or restored from the brink of elimination."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports ASC.
