Head Locke Episode 017: A Big Win for Voucher Proponents in N.C.

00:00 / 00:15:22

This week, Terry and special guest Mitch Kokai discuss a new analysis of the Opportunity Scholarship Program, North Carolina’s popular private school voucher program for low-income children.  North Carolina State University researchers found that the program produced “positive, large, and statistically significant” outcomes for voucher students compared to a matched group of public school students.  The guys point out that these findings confirm what Opportunity Scholarship supporters have always suspected – low-income students receive meaningful academic benefits in the private schools they choose to attend.  Nevertheless, they caution that those who oppose vouchers will continue to do so despite the N.C. State study.
