Re: Milwaukee School Vouchers

Just to follow up on Joe's post about the Milwaukee voucher story, if school choice produces the same results at half the cost, it also frees up money that could be reinvested in impoving schools. So, if Milwaukee spends $6,442 per voucher student and $14,011 per public school student, and this pattern holds as you expand the use of vouchers, it suggests that you could use the savings to spend more money on school infastructure, hiring more and better teachers, and so on.
