Clinic report analyzes N.C. school voucher program

A report generated by the Children’s Law Clinic looked at the first three years of North Carolina’s controversial school vouchers program and determined that the accountability measures are among the weakest in the country, among other findings. The report, authored by Clinic Director Jane Wettach, detailed several recommendations for state lawmakers, including expanded curriculum, “reasonable qualifications” for teachers, student participation in end-of-grade testing, requiring reporting of performance data, and prohibition of “all forms of discrimination” in schools accepting vouchers.
