There is no record that vouchers increase academic performance

A 2002 U. S. Government Accounting Office (GAO) study examining data from a limited private Washington, D.C. voucher program found no evidence to suggest that a larger voucher program would produce significant achievement gains for students.7 In fact, the study found that “the academic achievement of African American students who used a voucher to switch from public to private school was not consistently higher over the 3 years of the study than that of the control group of African American students who remained in public schools.”
