ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
This annotated bibliography highlights eleven publications on educational vouchers. Issues discussed include several voucher systems, the value of increased parental decision-making, and nonvoucher systems of educational options. The authors included in the bibliography also discuss how vouchers may promote freedom of choice but reduce equality of education, effects of a voucher system on racial segregation, and the participation of sectarian schools in voucher programs. Several entries focus on the history and structure of the Alum Rock (California) voucher project and attempt to evaluate it. Houston's magnet school program is also highlighted. All items are entries in the ERIC system. (JM)
