Alum Rock Union Elementary School District Voucher Feasibility Study. Final Report.
Glovinsky, Sanford J.
This report presents a chronology of events and activities which were part of the study aimed at determining the feasibility of the Alum Rock Union Elementary School District as a potential site for a voucher demonstration. In the summer of 1970, the Office of Economic Opportunity issued a general nationwide request for proposals from interested districts. The Alum Rock District contacted the Center for Planning and Evaluation, requesting assistance in the development of a proposal and, in the event the grant was awarded, help in planning and conducting the study. The grant was awarded in February 1971. When the grant had been officially accepted by the Alum Rock Board of Trustees, the task at hand was the formation of an Education Voucher Committee which would serve as the main working body at this stage of the study. Its function would be to represent the views of the community concerning the different aspects of a voucher experiment as well as to generate and report its own opinions. This report details how the committee was selected and organized. The report also presents the results of the committee's surveys of community attitudes toward various aspects of the experiment.
