The ‘neovoucher strategy’ (and why it didn’t work in New Hampshire)

Kevin Welner, CU-Boulder professor and director of the National Education Policy Center, literally wrote the book on neovouchers ( While regular vouchers involve the government giving tax revenues to parents for their children to attend private schools, "neovouchers" involve the government giving tax breaks to people who donate money for children to attend private schools. Either way, argues Welner, the government is funding private schools, and therefore we shouldn't be surprised at the recent New Hampshire court case that ruled against a neovoucher program.
