Muffled by the Din: The Competitive Noneffects of the Cleveland Voucher Program.
Hess, Frederick M.; McGuinn, Patrick J.
Teachers College Record, v104 n4 p727-64 Jun 2002
Examines how the introduction of the Cleveland voucher experiment in 1995 affected the administration and leadership of Cleveland's public schools. As of summer 2001, the program has produced virtually no visible effects. Results suggest that choice-based reform may not spur improvement in urban school systems, at least in the short term or when programs are heavily restricted. (Contains references.) (SM)
