Abstract:     
This article addresses the issue of "school choice" and, through surveys of state departments of education, evaluates the degree of parental choice actually available in the Nation's private schools. By means of a longitudinal study, the author compares the level of state regulation over private schools from state to state and discusses trends observable over a 15-year period.

The article provides a brief overview of constitutional issues raised by state regulation, presents a synopsis of existing regulatory schemes, and discusses some of the reasons for, and concerns raised by, various types of public control. The article concludes that limited state oversight of private education is clearly constitutional, but that most states do not regulate such schools as stringently as they legally could, and that there is a growing trend among the states toward substantial deregulation.
