Education Vouchers: The Experience at Alum Rock.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
In 1970, the Office of Economic Opportunity tried to establish several voucher test sites to evaluate the voucher concept. Alum Rock Union School District, San Jose, California, was the only district in the country to agree to be a test site. In July 1973, responsibility for the Education Voucher Program was transferred to the National Institute of Education. This report provides background information about the Alum Rock project and explains the preliminary reactions to education vouchers among the parents and teachers participating in the experiment. A more detailed evaluation of the first year at Alum Rock, prepared by the Rand Corporation, will follow this report. (Author/JF)
