Chingos/Peterson Vouchers Study Does Not Support Authors' Claims

This morning, I recommend downloading and reading Sara Goldrick-Rab’s review of the Brookings Institute Chingos/Peterson study of vouchers’ effects on college attendance. Bottom line (from p. 7):

Policymakers and practitioners interested in the effectiveness of school voucher programs should indeed attend to the results of this study, which—contrary to the interpretation of the authors—convincingly demonstrates that in New York City a private voucher program failed to increase the college enrollment rates of students from low-income families.
