School Choice Works

American’s for Tax Reform has a short primer on the success of school vouchers, scholarship, and tax credit programs:

There have been a total of ten studies of voucher programs that have used the ‘gold standard’ of social science research, random assignment. Not a single study using this method has found any of the harms that voucher opponents (teacher unions and other left of center establishments) predict. Instead, all statistically significant studies have shown that school voucher programs create a competitive market for students amongst schools. In turn, this increases the quality of education, greatly improves access to the best schools, decreases segregation, all while saving taxpayers money and maximizing the value of each dollar spent.
