Wall Street Journal | School Choice Saves Money
A study from Wisconsin adds up some of the economic evidence.
The Wall Street Journal profiled our most recent study that looked at the $500 million economic benefit of school choice to Milwaukee because of reduced criminality rates and higher graduation rates.
“That’s when the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, a nonprofit that advocates for limited government and education reform, decided to look at the relative cost and benefits of choice schools. And, what do you know, it found that students participating in Milwaukee’s voucher program will provide the city, state and students nearly $500 million in economic benefits through 2035 thanks to higher graduation and lower crime rates.”
