Can a Statewide Voucher Program Improve Student Outcomes?

Grant Year: 2017

Patrick Wolf and Jay Greene will examine whether a statewide school voucher program can improve school outcomes for students from low-income families. They will measure the impacts of Louisiana’s voucher program on student performance, explore the factors that might be contributing to the test score outcomes, and assess the program’s impact on educational spending in the state. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of papers.
