Parents’ choice is a controversial topic that has gotten more and more popular as schools become more diverse.
But does it actually work?
Parents and teachers alike are looking to find out.
In an effort to help parents choose their child’s best options for school quality, MTV News spoke with parents to get their take on the topic.

Parents are making a list of their top choices for school safety, according to the survey.
They want to be able to tell teachers and parents exactly what they want to see in the schools.
Parents are also looking to provide information about their child to their school leaders and parents to help them make a decision.
“It’s a good thing,” one parent said.
“The best part is, I know what my child is going to learn and how they’re going to grow, so I know how they can get a good education.
And it’s really important for parents to know what they’re giving up.”
One parent told MTV News that she is excited for her daughter to attend the school in which she will live with her dad and his friends.
“I feel like it will be a wonderful learning experience for them and their classmates,” the parent said, adding that the school will have a variety of experiences.
“I have the option to have a class with all the kids, and then a class that’s open to the whole class,” she added.
“They’re all learning, so it’s a great option for them.”
“I would definitely go to a school where there are no black kids.
I think that would be a good choice,” another parent said about a school with no black students.
“If I can make sure that my daughter can get that, I’m happy.”
Other parents shared their best choices, and they are not all negative.
One parent shared that the best school to go to was the one where the teachers are the most diverse.
“My daughter has been in that school,” she said.
Another parent shared their favorite school for their daughter to go into: a school that has been open to all students since the beginning.
“She has a great teacher, and she’s learning in the best way,” the other parent said of her daughter.
The parents said that if a school is not diverse enough, it should be changed.
“That’s not what it’s about,” the mother said.
“There is nothing wrong with black kids,” another mother added.
Another parent said that a school in a diverse area should have the same curriculum as a school without any black students and should not have a special curriculum.
“A lot of schools that are black, I think, have a very, very different curriculum than other schools,” the father said.
The mom also shared that her daughter likes to go for an online program, and that her friends and classmates are also interested in going to school.
“They want to get the best out of the school, and I’m going to do the same,” she concluded.
“So I think I’m in the right spot.”
Parents also said that they are happy with what they have in their schools.
“We feel that there are great teachers, and we feel that our school is very diverse,” the mom said.
Another mother told MTV that she feels like her daughter has a lot of respect for her teachers and that they do a great job.
“It’s not about how good of a teacher you are,” the dad said.
The parents also shared how they feel about the new school policy that allows students to take online classes.
“There is no problem with that.
I like that,” one of the parents said.
In a separate survey, the parents of eight schools, which include one in Chicago and another in Colorado, also said they are supportive of school choice.
“School choice is not something that should be taken lightly.
If a school can be in a more diverse area, then it’s better for the community, too,” one parents said of school choices.
“In our community, if you have a school [with] a lot more black students, then you have to look at the possibility of changing the curriculum to be more diverse,” another said.
Many parents are worried about what will happen when they move out of their current school.
“You’ll probably be moving away from your old school,” one mom said of moving to a new school.
Another mom, however, said she is not worried.
“With all of the things that we’re doing in school right now, we have a lot to live up to,” she continued.
“Our kids are going to go through a great education.”
Parents and teachers also told MTV they are worried that the new policy will hurt their schools’ reputation.
“What they’re doing is not working,” one teacher said.
Parents also expressed concern that if schools aren’t diverse enough and are too white, then the schools could not attract the best students.
Another said that schools that have more diversity should be able
