    It can’t be a transition word being used like that. If you used it like you used that example, your second sentence would be incomplete, or a fragment. Used properly, it would be more like: Students that prefer to learn in a more laid-back approach would perhaps choose a public school, whereas a student that would like to be challenged would most likely pick a charter school.And instead of saying a student “that” would, it should be “who” would, and you should pick either the singular or plural for student, instead of using one each sentence. Like this: Students who prefer to learn in a more laid-back approach would perhaps choose a public school, whereas students who would like to be challenged would most likely pick a charter school.Transition words are used most easily and naturally at the beginning and ends of paragraphs.Hope I helped (:
