You probably already knew it, but if you didn't, yet another study demonstrates that vouchers improve student outcomes. I'd give you the link to the WSJ article, but then you'd have to subscribe.
So basically, the study by Harvard professor Paul Peterson and Matthew Chingos finds that African American students using vouchers were 24 percent more likely to graduate and attend college. Don't want to read the full study? Read, Dr. Peterson's much shorter article at Education Next instead.
These aren't large results but it is still impressive considering how restricted voucher programs in the U.S. really are (both in terms of money and enrollment).
