Nearly 100,000 Michigan students use Schools of Choice to attend a school outside of the district in which they live. Despite the large volume of students, this form of public school choice has not been widely studied, especially compared to other forms of public school choice, such as charter schools.

The Mackinac Center has released a study examining the use of Schools of Choice throughout Michigan over the last decade. The study measures growth over time and geographic spread, and reveals student and parental preferences the program brings to light. The study finds that SOC participation has grown steadily, with enrollment growing by 144 percent over the past 10 years.

Though enrollment through Schools of Choice was previously more prevalent in more rural areas of the state, it is now spread throughout Michigan. A total of 461 school districts reported receiving at least one student through Schools of Choice during the 2011-12 school year. High school and kindergarten students use Schools of Choice more than students in any other grade.
