It will ALWAYS cost the state less to educate a child with a school voucher that it would to educate the very same child at their traditional public school.
The report claims that school voucher models don't encourage student achievement. However, as this article states, the report doesn’t take into account data that exist already on student achievement in Indiana. Eighty-three percent of private school students passed the ISTEP+ test, compared with 74 percent of public school students in 2013-14.
The report uses no Indiana-specific data. Student achievement in Indiana is up by every measure.
