As the idea of school choice gains ground among parents and policy makers across the country, the question of how parents choose schools becomes more important. Annette Lareau, the sociologist whose work on middle class parenting practices changed the field, has now explored the role that neighborhoods and social networks play in determining, and limit­ing, school choice. Lareau will discuss her recent edited volume on this subject, Choosing Homes, Choosing Schools, as well as research on how parents select kindergarten programs.
