The Best Resources For Learning Why School Vouchers Are A Bad Idea

| 0 comments

School vouchers that would allow parents pay private school tuition with public money has been in the news over the past week — both in Washington, D.C. and in Colorado.

Given these events, I thought it would be useful to readers and to me to bring together some resources on the issue. I’ve also included more general articles on the idea of school “choice.”

I hope others will provide additional suggestions.
