This issue also features an expanded Friedman Report summarizing the political climate for school vouchers in 31 states. Managing Editor George A. Clowes reports that the seven members of the Camden City Council on July 25 unanimously passed a resolution asking the government and legislature of the Garden State to make a school voucher program available to families with children in the city’s public schools.
