Washington Univ., Seattle. Bureau of School Service and Research.
This report summarizes the results of a 3-month feasibility study of the education voucher plan for the City of Seattle. This study represents the activities conducted as the Phase I portion of the 4-phase voucher plan (February 15-May 15, 1971). The first section focuses on activities in the State of Washington relevant to the inception of the Seattle feasibility study. The bulk of the report covers a series of preplanning tasks of problem areas that will need to be resolved prior to any decision regarding the actual establishment of the demonstration project. In each of the areas studied, several alternatives are presented as an aid to the Seattle Board of Education as it deliberates the merits of the voucher plan. Related documents are ED 049 522 and EA 004 081. (Author)
