In case you don’t know anything about Betsy DeVos, the Washington Post has a good summary. 


So does Wikipedia.


She is a huge fan of vouchers. She supports Common Core. She thinks vouchers will give every child a great education.


The story says that some studies find that voucher students are more likely to go to college. Those studies show that voucher schools have high rates of attrition. The students who don’t transfer back to public schools are slightly more likely to go to college. The studies typically don’t factor in the students who leave when calculating the graduation rate. In Milwaukee, for example, 44% of the kids who started in voucher schools in 9th grade dropped out before graduation.
