Vouchers Improve Public Schools

This is the conclusion of a new study Harry Brighouse blogs about here. While proponents often stress that vouchers will enable children to attend better-performing schools, these results should not be surprising. Insofar as one believes that it is market competition, more than the private or public nature of a given entitity, which leads to improved performance, one would expect that exposing public schools to competition, would improve public school performance.
