AbstractPrevious studies in parental choice have examined the nature of so‐called pull and push factors and the nature of the decision‐making process facing parents when deciding upon a secondary school for their children. A review of the literature has revealed that there are spatial aspects of parental choice which have largely been neglected by educational researchers. This paper highlights a number of education‐based studies which have utilized spatial management techniques (such as geographical information systems) and proposes a research agenda for future work with the specific remit of examining the changing role of parental choice in the United Kingdom educational system.
