Publisher/Think Tank - The Brookings Institution

Author(s) -

Jointly released with the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard University, this report examines college enrollment rates of students participating in an experimental voucher program in New York City.

Reviewer(s) - Sara Goldrick-Rab, The University of Wisconsin-Madison
