Education vouchers: Is the competition introduced by vouchers a good thing?

  • Yes, competition improves performance.

    Yes, competition introduced by school vouchers is a good thing, because it means that good schools will succeed and continue to operate, and bad schools must convince students and parents that there is something to be gained by continuing to attend the school. Private schools or charter schools could expand their offerings to meet increased demand, if school vouchers were a possibility.

  • Competition introduced by vouchers is not a good thing

    The use of vouchers in education only proves that the educational system is broken and not serving all students equally. The voucher system is a great illustration to show kids that not all of them are worthy of a "great" or "excellent" education and that many of them will receive educations in schools that are well below others in quality and staffing.
