There’s no link between vouchers and gains in student achievement.
There’s no conclusive evidence that vouchers improve the achievement of students who use them to attend private school. Nor is there any validity to claims that, by creating a “competitive marketplace” for students, vouchers force public schools to improve. In fact, the most dramatic improvements in student achievement have occurred in places where vouchers do not exist — such as Texas, North Carolina, Connecticut and Chicago. Instead, those states and communities focused on teacher quality and extra help for students who need it.
Do vouchers undermine accountability for public funds?
Do you feel that vouchers do not reduce public education costs?
Do vouchers give parents real educational choice?
Two out of three voters cast “no” on use of vouchers.

Has public education become big business at the expense of our children? Dyett High School in Chicago is just one of many public schools in danger of closing and being reopened as a privately owned institution. Some say that's good - the more private institutions we have, the more control we have over our children's education. But private schools, unless heavily financed by large corporations, tend to fail because schools rely on families to meet budget requirements through tuition. When tuition costs rise, families leave the school and this creates a greater financial burdon on the remaining families. The downward spiral effect leads to good private schools closing. In areas where coporations have taken over the schools and made them private, many local children are excluded from attending. Jitu Brown, National Director for the Journey For Justice Alliance, is working with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to insure that Dyett remains a viable public school, and is not closed and reopened as a private, corporately owned school that excludes neighborhood students.

""FDOT and I-4 Mobility Partners, comprised of Skanska and John Laing, have worked expeditiously towards financial close with lenders including a consortium of six commercial banks and the Federal Highway Administration through the TIFIA credit assistance program. This has allowed FDOT to benefit from the low interest rate environment which has resulted in a $68.7 million (net present value in 2014 dollars) decrease when compared to the I-4 MobilityPartners financial proposal. I-4 Mobility Partners has invested $104 million in the project and commercial banks and TIFIA are lending $486 million and $949 million, respectively to the project."
