Facts About Vouchers

National Coalition for Public Education

Private school vouchers undermine public schools. Open and nondiscriminatory in their acceptance of all students, American public schools are a unifying factor among diverse communities in our society. Vouchers undermine this vital function, however, by diverting desperately needed public resources away from the public school system to fund the education of a few students at private schools—without offering any actual reforms. The government would better serve our children by using these funds to make the public schools stronger.
