Professor Julian Vasquez Heilig of the University of Texas is trying to raise funding to take a research team to Chile to study the failure of the voucher progr. He needs your help. Tickets cost either $1,000 round trip or 30,000-60,000 frequent flyer miles. Please consider sponsoring a member of his research team. We can learn from what happened in Chile. With so many states adopting voucher plans without evidence, we should get the facts now from the world’s longest running voucher program.

Chile has had vouchers for decades. They did not improve education, and they increased social segregation. The newly elected government of Chile plans to pare back the choice system that was launched during the regime of the military dictator Pinochet. Help Professor Heilig and his team gather the facts about vouchers and inform our policymakers.
