Abstract

The incoming Donald Trump administration has sparked a new debate over the value of school vouchers in American education policy. But just how effective are school vouchers? In new research which examines a school voucher program in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Michael R. Ford finds that more than 40 percent of schools which received school voucher revenues now no longer exist. He writes that this high voucher school failure rate is down to the design of the scheme itself. Educational entrepreneurship and school failure, it seems, are two sides of the same coin.
