dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research is to observe the effects of participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program on the students' achievement in Reading and Mathematics. Literature surrounding the voucher debate is reviewed through the viewpoint of an economist and that of an educator. This unique approach is followed by an explanation of the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. An analytical look at data collected from the Milwaukee program is provided. This is accomplished by comparing the standardized reading and math test scores, from the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) data set, of participants previous to entering the choice program to ITBS test scores collected after different years of participation. The time range of participation is from one year to five years; however, not all students continued participation in the program after the first year. An explanation concerning the unexpected results concludes this study.en_US
