"Milwaukee, Wisconsin has a 25-year-old school voucher program (MPCP) restricted to low-income students, district-run chartered public schools and some privately funded vouchers. Because the MPCP is the oldest publicly funded U.S. voucher program, its results have attracted a lot of attention. Sadly, much of what has been said and written, from school choice expansion proponents and opponents alike, is wrong, misleading or irrelevant. Here’s why." #schoolchoice #edchoice
Milwaukee's voucher program is the oldest version of modern school choice. It's had good results, but it's not the end all, be all, either.

Jon Gabriel, the author of this piece, said it best:

"Why do so many anti-choicers continue claiming that tax-credit programs harm public education? Since school choice first emerged on the political scene, controversy has followed. No, not from parents and students, but mostly from education union bosses and the politicians they fund..."

In "The Private School Landscape," authors Dr. Dick Carpenter, Rebecca S. Keith and Andrew D. Catt test the longstanding theory that over time more #schoolchoice programs drive competition in schooling and, thus, more private school capacity in the states where they are in effect. Further, we wanted to know if more access to educational choice programs would increase private school enrollment and diversify student demographics. The Private School Landscape addresses these questions and makes recommendations for how states can spur more change faster.
One concern about school choice programs is private school capacity. Our authors weighs in on how to maximize available seats here.
