A Think Twice Review of:

Think Twice - Nov 18, 2010

Publisher/Think Tank - Harvard University Program on Education Policy and Governance (PEPG)

Author(s) -

This report attempts to counter claims made by two AZ newspapers that the state's tuition tax credit voucher program has failed to increase private school access for low-income families.

Reviewer(s) - Casey D. Cobb, University of Connecticut

In his review, Cobb indicates that though the report makes a reasonable attempt to determine the income of families receiving scholarship, it overstates the newspapers' claims. He also finds that the report's validity is uncertain because of questions regarding accuracy and representativeness of the data used.
