Michigan’s school of choice practice is an evolving system. This literature review analyzes the policies involved in Michigan’s school of choice and the factors that affect the systemic effects of school of choice. School of choice gives families the opportunity to find more fitting education options for their students beyond their designated public school. However, not every student can feasibly and logistically participate in these choice policies. School of choice has become a very polarizing topic because of the differences between the intended outcomes and the actual outcomes. Since the change in Michigan laws that began school of choice, there have been many unintended consequences for students, families, schools, and the education system. This literature review has compiled these implications to show the trends that have resulted from school of choice in Michigan.
