The Real Accomplishments of Public Education and the False Promise of Vouchers.
LaCour, Nat
Journal of Negro Education, v71 n1-2 p5-16 Win-Spr 2002
Asserts that vouchers are not the solution to public school problems, calling vouchers political and economic schemes for creating a market system of schools that would effectively reinforce separate and unequal school systems. Notes that no evidence supports the superiority of vouchers or private schools, though evidence demonstrates substantial progress by public schools in raising poor students' achievement and narrowing the black-white achievement gap.
