New York City study finds vouchers boost blacks' college-going rates
from Education Week
Receiving a voucher to attend a private school in New York City did not increase the likelihood of attending college for most students, but did increase college-going rates for black students, a study of participants in a privately funded scholarship program concludes. Forty-two percent of 1,363 students who received vouchers through the New York School Choice Scholarship Fund and 42 percent of those who applied for but did not receive the tuition aid had enrolled in college within three years of their expected high school graduation date, according to the study.
