This paper examines the voucher program introduced in the late 1950's by Milton Friedman, a well-known economist who called for more privatized education. He is credited with devising the voucher theory, which focused on privatization of education thereby allowing poor students to use public funds for education in private or public schools. This paper looks at the history of its implementation, the advantages, disadvantages and social benefits. It examines how most of the children on the voucher system attend religious school and asks whether this is a good effect of the system.
From the Paper:"Voucher system in schools refer to the educational initiative where disadvantaged students from low-income families are awarded a voucher worth a certain fixed amount so that their parents can opt for private schools. Vouchers are just one form of school choice programs and they are currently running mainly in Cleveland and Milwaukee in addition to Florida, Maine, and Vermont."
