This report considers both the pro and con positions regarding the school voucher system, while taking into account that both positions are multifaceted, and both make several points in their favor. The paper also discusses religious and secular responses to a school voucher system and looks at the legal, financial, and ethical aspects of such a system.

From the Paper:

"In terms of social analysis, school vouchers is the issue being determined. The history of this issue is fairly recent in terms of its actual implementation, so there is not a lot of substantial data reflecting either the success or the failure of school vouchers, which makes it a controversial issue because both sides can claim this lack of statistical
data as the fault of the other side. School vouchers affect school systems and districts across the country. "School voucher systems have been proposed in several states and cities across the nation and is part of a larger movement toward school choice. The choice movement advocates abolishing strict school district lines, allowing parents to enroll their children in any public school in the area, creating so-called "magnet" schools with special programs to attract bright students and similar "charter" schools with more autonomy than a traditional public school. School vouchers, therefore, extend the choice concept
(Woodward, 2000). The implications for society therefore involve the amount of choice available in the society. The power on this issue is held by school districts as well as political interest."
