The Educational Voucher System: A Monstrous Threat to Public Education?
Sivak, Marie Rose
This paper analyzes use of the educational voucher system in four school districts across the country. Next it examines the legal implications of using vouchers as public funding for education. The effect of the use of vouchers on the school code of the state of Illinois is discussed in depth. Finally, the paper offers a review of attitudes for and against the use of vouchers for educational purposes. An extensive appendix offers guidelines for experimental high school programs in Illinois; maps of special education service units, vocational education centers, and community college districts; and copies of sample vouchers.
