This is a bombshell. This report out of a Wisconsin conservative think tank called the Policy Research Institute titled, Fixing the Milwaukee Public Schools: The Limits of Parent-Driven Reform," takes the wind out of the sails of pro-voucher advocates. It argues that the limits of vouchers to create the competitive, free-market environment that conservatives seek. However, this is unlikely to deter advocates who nevertheless feel that they are double-taxed whenever they have to pay for other children's public education while they pay for their own children's private education.
