Michael McShane: DC Vouchers Generate $2.62 for every $1

February 25, 2013

Can you quantify the dollar value of school choice? Michael McShane thinks he can. He and Patrick Wolf published a study concluding that every $1 taxpayers spend on the Washington DC vouchers program generates $2.62 in economic benefits for the participants and society. He joins the School Reform News podcast to talk about the study, how non-scientists should evaluate studies they hear about from the media, and his work on school choice. Mike is a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
