Saying NO to School Choice

Saying NO to School Choice
July 1, 1999



David Urbanski, director of the Blum Center for Parental Freedom in Education at Marquette University, Milwaukee, reports that school choice measures introduced during the 1999 legislative sessions of many states failed to win approval, either at the committee level or by a vote in the legislature. Closely watched voucher proposals in Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas failed to win approval.
