Journal of School Choice, v1 n4 p77-88 2007
The issue of school choice and its effects on student performance have become a prevalent part of the educational landscape. This longitudinal investigation examines a group of students not typically associated with the school choice movement: high ability or "gifted" students. The study analyzed whether attending a private school through participation in the Cleveland Scholarship and Tutoring Program, which is among the longest running experimental evaluations of a school voucher program in the United States, resulted in differential performance on standardized achievement tests for top performing students. Analyses showed that no statistically or practically significant differences were found between gifted students participating in the program and control group students who attended public schools.
