P-12 Voucher Program and Policy Ripples Through Education

Submitted On: Monday, March 10, 2014

Analyst: Wills, Katherine

P-12 school voucher programs address policy movements and expansions that may have implications for state and national educational communities. The National Conference of State Legislatures website traces nation-wide trends in comprehensive reports. This information can be of interest to policymakers and educators who are examining voucher initiatives.

Currently, 13 states offer school vouchers to qualifying students.  Listed below are a few common questions states must  address when developing their voucher programs: 

  • What is the scope of the program?
  • Who is eligible?
  • How will vouchers affect publicly-funded students? Will there be a cap on the number of vouchers that can be handed out each year?
  • What will be the value of a voucher?
