A Think Twice Review of:

How School Choice Can Create Jobs for South Carolina

Think Twice - Jan 14, 2010

Publisher/Think Tank - South Carolina Policy Council Education Foundation

Author(s) -

This report argues that school choice, in the form of vouchers to attend private schools, would create significant job opportunities in five poor, rural counties in South Carolina.

Reviewer(s) - Joydeep Roy, Georgetown University

Roy's review of the South Carolina report finds that it is built on seriously flawed assumptions and offers little insight into the effects of school vouchers. Roy writes that the report relies more on rhetoric and less on authentic research and concludes that it is significantly biased and of little value to policymakers.
