A school's success depends upon its ability to gain enough market shares to remain open. Because parental school choices are backed by public money (vouchers), they will have a financial impact on both the success and failure of schools. This chapter provides an overview of the large-scale voucher program in the city of Milwaukee. It analyzes the impact of vouchers on the education system and elaborates on the issue of accountability for voucher schools.

Keywords:   school choices, vouchers, voucher program, Milwaukee, accountability, voucher schools
