we'll have a system with no neighborhood schools at all, where everyone chooses a school from a menu, like you choose a bank. Is this an acceptable outcome?

Yes, because for many DC'ers, the alternative is considered unacceptable: neighborhood schools mean that students in nice neighborhoods get nice schools that they are protective of, and students in not-so-good neighborhoods get poor-quality neighborhood schools. So neighborhood schools have to go on the chopping block in favor of "people get to choose their own schools." That actually seems fair. What if I don't like the neighborhood and the students in it? I certainly wouldn't want to be stuck in a neighborhood school.
