A School Voucher Program for Baltimore City

Featuring

The implementation of a school voucher program designed for low-income students could save Baltimore City over $30 million dollars within 10 years, according to a new study released by the Maryland Public Policy Institute (MPPI) and the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, the nation’s leading school choice advocate. Dan Lips, Senior Fellow at MPPI, authored the study.

In this forum, the expert panel will lead a thought-provoking discussion regarding how Baltimore could enact a similar program to those implemented in other cities. The study offers policymakers a fiscally sound voucher proposal that can benefit participating students and the school system.
