School Vouchers and Performance

School Vouchers and Performance. An important issue in the debate on voucher systems and school choice is what effects competition from independent schools will have on public schools. Sweden has made a radical reform of its system for financing schools. Independent and public schools operate on close to equal terms under a voucher system covering all children. The findings of this paper support the hypothesis that school results in public schools improve due to competition. "School Vouchers in Practice: Competition Won't Hurt You!" by F. Mikael Sandström and Fredrik Bergström.
