July 2004 School Reform News Article Correction

Published September 1, 2004

Although the July 2004 School Reform News article, “Colorado Now Sends Aid to Colleges Via Vouchers,” reported the state’s $2,400 college voucher “would cover the full tuition cost at most community colleges,” this is not true since the full tuition cost is about $4,000 a year. Even with the voucher, community college students would still need to find another $1,600 a year to cover tuition costs.

School Reform News regrets the error.

For more information … John C. Ensslin explains how the confusion arose in this July 3, 2004 article in the Rocky Mountain News: http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/education/article/0,1299,DRMN_957_3009990,00.html
