Costs of an Educational Voucher System.
Levin, Harry M.; Driver, Cyrus E.
Education Economics, v5 n3 p265-83 Dec 1997
Suggests a framework for estimating the costs associated with shifting from the traditional method of financing and administering U.S. public schools to an educational voucher system. Uses certain framework components to compute "ballpark" estimates in five cost areas: accommodating additional students, record keeping, student transportation, information to parents, and dispute adjudication. Public costs of vouchers could raise costs 25%. (41 references) (MLH)
