On November 2, 1993, Californians will decide whether to amend the California Constitution according to the provisions of the "Parental Choice in Education Initiative," Proposition 174.

PACE has undertaken an analysis of the initiative's provisions. This analysis is intended to provide policymakers, parents, educators, and mem­bers of the general public with objective information. PACE is not taking a position on the initiative. Rather, the PACE analysis reviews significant components of the initiative and raises the policy questions and issues for voters to consider.

PACE has produced additional informational materials related to this initiative and to the general issue of school choice. These materials are described in the attached list of PACE reports on school choice.
