How do Voucher programs work?

VOUCHER PROGRAMS

School voucher programs allow education dollars to “follow the child” to the private school of their parents’ choice.

Answer

Voucher programs allow education dollars to "follow the child," enabling parents to select private schools and receive state-funded scholarships to pay tuition. These scholarships are usually targeted to students who come from low-income families, have special needs or currently attend a failing public school. Research has demonstrated that vouchers increase student achievement, boost graduation rates, and help public schools improve. They also lead to high parental satisfaction rates.
