The advantages and dis***** to the Voucher System

Voucher ***** voucher system is an alternative method of funding education. Instead of tax revenue being *****tributed to state-run schools, parents are issued directly with vouchers, which can be spent on education in any school, privately or publicly run. Schools therefore compete for pupils and the funds that come with *****m.

Advantages of the Voucher System

One advantage of a voucher plan is increasing the range of options for the consumer, namely students and p*****nts. Dissatisfied consumers are free to shop around for better goods. A school ***** satisfies personal desires for *****ir children's education may be a priv*****te institution, one that the family ***** not be able to afford *****out voucher.

*****nother ***** acknowledged profusely by advocate, is the increased opportunity provided to lower achievers. Lower ***** in under-funded urban ***** have the ***** ***** attend schools with the means to provide ***** quality education with the financial assistant of *****.

The major advantage of a ***** system is that it removes ***** differentiation between state ***** non-government schools, and does not penalize p*****nts for the choices they make. Low-income parents would be allowed greater control and choice than ***** presently the case.

Disadvantages of the Voucher System

***** disadvantage of vouchers is that it takes funds away from the ***** that need them most. ***** operating in rich areas will ask more than the basic voucher price, while schools operating in the most difficult circumstances, dealing with socially excluded groups ***** be restricted ***** ***** basic voucher amount. Funds should ***** targeted to schools that need them, not schools who are already succeeding.

A*****her disadvantage is that ***** *****not be a market. Supply cannot adjust fast enough to changing dem***** so some ***** will always end up stuck in dying, under-funded schools because over-subscribed ***** cannot expand fast enough.

***** major drawback ***** a voucher system ***** that by ***** non-government schools on the same basis as state *****, it makes them vulner***** to the same level of government regulation. The success and popularity of non-government schools is arguably due to their ***** autonomy and independence.
