With one of the largest school voucher program’s in the nation, Indiana released their annual report covering participation and payments.
The Indianapolis Star offers the report touts a savings.
“For example, a new calculation compares this year’s estimated $146 million cost of school vouchers — also known as choice scholarships — to the hypothetical cost if all choice students attended public schools, which the report places at $214 million.
That shows the savings to the state, IDOE spokesman Adam Baker said, while also illustrating the dollars that public schools lose to the choice program.”
There are questions still around what savings means and how students are progressing.
