Title: SCHOOL CHOICE IN RURAL GEORGIA: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS
Authors: Keeler, Andrew G.

Keywords: School choice
Educational finance
Rural areas
Tuition tax credits
Issue Date: 1994-12
Abstract: Previous empirical studies of school choice have been at the national level, or have focussed on northeastern states. We estimate the demand for private education in rural Georgia, using proportion of private school attendance as an indicator variable. We find that income, tuition, race and school quality are important choice determinants. The results provide useful information for rural school administrators, and suggest that a tuition tax credit would have to be substantial to cause a significant exodus from public schools.
