First launched in fall 2007, Ohio’s EdChoice voucher program served more than 55,000 students in 2021-22. The program offers state-funded scholarships to eligible students and allows them to attend a private school. Critics have alleged that EdChoice negatively impacts traditional school districts, and a coalition of districts has sued the state on such grounds. But how true are the claims? Does EdChoice actually cause fiscal distress or decreased academic performance?
In partnership with School Choice Ohio, we invite you to join us on December 14th to hear results from a forthcoming Fordham Institute report by Stéphane Lavertu, a professor at The Ohio State University. Based on in-depth analyses of district enrollments, finances, and performance, Dr. Lavertu will present his empirical findings about the impacts of EdChoice on traditional public schools. This event is in-person, and an audience Q&A will follow the presentation.
