Editor’s comment: This article from 20 years ago, describes the truth about vouchers: they are not a free-market solution to education.
“If proponents of school vouchers get their way, Americans might well be permanently saddled with one of the most massive government welfare programs in history. What began many years ago as a modest proposal to help those on the lowest rungs of the economic ladder with their educational needs now threatens to encompass every child in America.”
