It has been a rough couple of months for advocates of private and religious school vouchers.
First, voters in Utah – the reddest red state in the nation – went to the polls and trounced a voucher scheme that misguided legislators had tried to foist on them.
Then, a researcher examining Wisconsin’s voucher program for children in Milwaukee determined that students in the plan are doing no better academically than their public-school counterparts. The finding is similar to other studies that have been released over the years.
Now comes a real shocker: A researcher has determined that students attending Catholic elementary schools make no more progress in reading than similar students in public schools, and they do even worse in math. . . .
