Master's Professional Reports Abstract

An Analysis of Private School Vouchers and the Implications for Education Reform in Texas
German, Julie Michelle
REPORT G317 Public Affairs Library

This report provides an overview of private school voucher programs and proposals across the country, and evaluates their implications for the development of such programs in Texas. Beginning with a descriptive history of school choice, the report moves on to discuss the national trends with respect to private school vouchers. Evaluating the only three publicly funded voucher programs in the country, the report discusses the potential for voucher programs in general. Private school voucher programs and proposals in Texas are then assessed in the report, with an ensuing evaluation of the feasibility of publicly funded school voucher programs in the state. Finally, recommendations are made for the State of Texas regarding private school voucher programs.
