Proponents of private school choice make a wide array of claims about its benefits. They claim competition will spur public school improvement; vouchers will reduce the cost of education; students who get vouchers will show achievement gains; school choice will improve integration in schools and more. A vast body of research on whether school choice programs work now exists.
The fourth edition of A Win-Win Solution: The Empirical Evidence on School Choice examines 100 empirical studies of school choice programs in one convenient report.
Has school choice had the effect predicted by some economists, education experts, and millions of parents? Do the results argue for wider experiments or the adoption of broad-based vouchers or education savings accounts? This Slideshare features the definitive research.
