Survey of School Choice Research, Spring 2005

April 2005

Howard Fuller's Institute published this 13-pager by senior fellow Gerard Robinson. It concisely recaps the findings of studies of several publicly funded and a number of privately supported voucher programs. The author "strongly" concludes that vouchers "improve academic performance, especially among African-American students; increase parent satisfaction and involvement; and appear to have a positive impact on student achievement in public schools."  Find it here.
