Six school choice programs around the country were rated excellent, while two other programs received low ratings, based on their abilities to be available to significant numbers of families, according to a report by the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation, an Indianapolis-based organization that supports vouchers and other school-choice programs.

“Using School Choice: Analyzing How Parents Access Educational Freedom” is posted by the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation.

The report gave its highest marks for accessibility to school voucher programs in Milwaukee and Cleveland; Arizona’s tax-credit scholarships for low-income families; and programs in Illinois and Iowa that offer limited tax credits for school costs, including private school tuition.

The report gave its lowest ratings to Florida’s Opportunity Scholarships, which provide financial assistance for students who leave the state’s lowest-rated public schools to attend private schools; and a program in Washington that offers school vouchers to low-income families.
