The Friedman Foundation, which has been porting vouchers and the dissolution of traditional public schools for many years, here disagrees with Peter Greene’s critique of school choice. The foundation’s namesake, Milton Friedman, began advocating for vouchers in 1955. The idea didn’t gain any traction until 1990, when Milwaukee adopted a voucher program. Today, Milwaukee is one of the nation’s lowest performing districts on NAEP, only a tad above Detroit. If anyone wants evidence of the in effectiveness of vouchers, check out Milwaukee. As we near a quarter-century of the voucher experiment, it may be time to say “we tried vouchers.” No miracle in sight.

By the way, voters have never approved vouchers. In every district or state where they exist, they were enacted by a legislative body, not by voters.
