Educational Vouchers -- Some Policy Issues.
Mauch, J. E.
The problems now confronting public education in the cities represent some of the major reasons for advocating the voucher system. This report identifies many of these problems, examines the concept of educational vouchers, and raises some policy and research issues that should be considered before such a system is tried. The author outlines a model of a public education voucher system to be used in a pilot demonstration. He discusses the impact of the system on decentralization, competition and quality, alienation and apathy, accountability, innovation and experimentation, and equality of educational opportunity.
