Among the various reform efforts in education, few are more controversial than educational vouchers. This debate is intensifying with the 2002 Supreme Court decision to uphold the constitutionality of Cleveland's publicly funded voucher program. However, the debate has often been waged based on philosophical and ideological views rather than research and facts. In this article, we go beyond the rhetoric and summarize the best of the empirical research that has examined vouchers, both domestically and internationally.
