EdChoice: Vouchers save tax dollars
The Georgia Special Needs scholarship is open to students with disabilities who’ve attended public school for one year.
School vouchers have saved state and local taxpayers $3.2 billion — or $3,400 per student — through 2015, concludes an EdChoice report, Fiscal Effects of School Vouchers.
The pro-choice nonprofit analyzed 16 school voucher programs: Most provide portable funding for students with disabilities.
Because of school voucher programs, public schools are left with more money to educate fewer students, concludes Martin Lueken. He analyzed the likelihood a voucher user would have enrolled in public school if there were no voucher and the cost of educating that student.
