The article presents information on a study that examines public management challenges faced by those educational agencies that are required to set a market for offering choice in supplemental educational services (SES). The SES is offered to students in underperforming schools. The study found that SES provider market shares were not very highly correlated with estimates of provider performance and other relevant vendor characteristics. It is also found that local educational agencies were not satisfied with the level of control they get over service quality as well as educational outcomes.
