A study by professors at Duke, MIT, and Berkeley released by the National Bureau of Economic Research and entitled, “School Vouchers and Student Achievement: First-Year Evidence from the Louisiana Scholarship Program,” found that student participation in LSP “substantially reduces academic achievement.”

Here is an article in EducationNext, “The Folly of Overregulating School Choice,” about the voucher study.

The Fayetteville Observer is running a special report, “Poverty’s Price.” Here are links to articles on schools:

The neighborhood that puts its kids on a path to prison

A school that fought failure and won, if only briefly

Our schools suspend black students 4 times more than whites. Why?

Child exposure to ‘toxic stress’ a key link to behavior, learning problems
