“The Impact of School Vouchers in Developing Countries: A Systematic Review,” authored by WestEd researchers, was recently published in the International Journal of Educational Research.

WestEd’s Claire Morgan, Anthony Petrosino, and Trevor Fronius authored the journal article summarizing their research, funded by the UK Department for International Development.

Highlights of the Study

  • Researchers systematically reviewed the impact of education vouchers in developing countries
  • Systematic searching identified two rigorous evaluations: Colombia and Pakistan
  • Programs likely improved equity and were cost-effective over time
  • Evaluations did not examine impact on overall education quality
  • Further voucher experiments in developing countries are needed
