Does Over-Regulation of Voucher Programs Create Homogenization?

October 16, 2017

Corey DeAngelis, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom talks about a recent study he coauthored that found how regulating voucher programs too much makes private schools much like public schools.

Corey DeAngelis, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom and a Distinguished Doctoral Fellow at the University of Arkansas, discusses new research he coauthored about the effects of over-regulation on school choice programs.
DeAngelis talks about how government interference homogenizes schools and makes private schools just like public schools, so that the point of giving parents choice and an alternative is essentially lost. DeAngelis provides his visions for education and schools choice - one that enables parents to shop around, determine what is the best fit for their unique child, and support such a school by enrolling their child. DeAngelis also talks about the downsides of standardized testing and what research shows parents really want out of schools.
