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

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

The report gives its highest marks for accessibility to tuition-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.

It gives 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 federally sponsored program in the District of Columbia that offers vouchers to low-income families.
