D.C. Voucher Program Students Perform Worse on Math

Washington, D.C. students who use federally funded vouchers to attend private schools perform significantly worse in math than their public school peers, according to a new federal study.

The study, from the Institute of Education Sciences, found that math scores were 10 percentage points lower for students who used vouchers compared with students who applied for the voucher program but were not selected through the lottery. Voucher students also had lower reading scores, though the difference was not statistically significant.
