Investor’s Business Daily | Elder: Don’t Let Trump Hatred Thwart School Choice Movement

 In Education Reform, ER Commentary, In the News

Best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio talk-show host, Larry Elder, notes our Apples to Apples report, writing in Investor’s Business Daily:

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty wrote last year: “The Milwaukee Parental Choice Program works. … Out of 11 gold standard studies on the program, 10 have shown that students in the MPCP outperform their peers at Milwaukee Public Schools (one study showed no significant difference). … Students in the MPCP outperformed their peers in public schools in both math and reading on the Forward Exam when appropriate ‘apples-to-apples’ comparisons are made. We also found that MPCP students score about 7.7% higher on the ACT than MPS students, a difference that could determine whether a student gets into college or not in some cases.”
