Abstract

The author researched the constitutionality and effectiveness of vouchers and school choice systems throughout the United States. She wanted to know if school choice systems were constitutional, what were the pros and cons of each, how did they affect budgets, how were they held accountable, and how did they affect student achievement in both academic and non-academic areas. Her research included studying P. E. Peterson and L. Larson's findings. She sent surveys to Twin City and Milwaukee public, private, and charter schools to get their feedback. She intended to take her research and meet with a Minnesota Legislative Sub Committee in hopes that they would look into how Minnesota can improve its current system. Ultimately it was found that each system has its own uniqueness and positive characteristics that could be fused into Minnesota's Public Educational System.
