A Think Twice Review of:

Segregation Levels in Cleveland Public Schools and the Cleveland Voucher Program

Think Twice - Oct 05, 2006

Publisher/Think Tank - The Friedman Foundation and the Buckeye Institute

Author(s) -

This report finds that private schools participating in the Cleveland voucher program are less segregated than the city's public schools.

Reviewer(s) - Gary Ritter, University of Arkansas

Ritter's review indicates that though the methodology and analysis in the report appear sound, the conclusions drawn by its authors should have been more cautious and that some "overreach" the data presented. He cautions that with regard to the effect of school choice plans on segregation, the Cleveland and national data in the report offer only a small piece of a very large puzzle.
