An Evaluation of the CEO Horizon 1998-2008 Edgewood Tuition Voucher Program
Established in 1998, CEO Horizon Scholarships have been available to students of the Edgewood Independent School District. These scholarships essentially function as tuition vouchers in that eligibility does not require proof of superior academic ability. Using this program as a case study on the effectiveness of school vouchers, this report finds a strong economic development effect of universal school choice programs. States, cities, counties, and school districts can use a no-price-control, universal voucher program to attract families and businesses at no net fiscal cost–and probably some savings–while also improving the education system.
