Abstract
The aim of this study was to explore participants' experiences and opinions about a free-choice system in relation to policy objectives articulated by the national government and local authorities. A case study was conducted. Thirty five informants participated. Qualitative interviews were undertaken. Results discussed are how to address different dimensions of choice, not only where, also what, by whom, how much, and when. They also concern how to design systems that in some ways ensure predictability and continuity to avoid unwanted harm caused by the unpredictability embedded in competitive choice systems. Finally different aspects of quality need to be addressed.
