When France lost the(18701871) many blamed the loss on its inferior military education system. Following this defeat, the French Assembly proposed a religious voucher that they hoped would improve schools by allowing students to seek out the best. This proposal never moved forward due to. Despite its failure, this proposal closely resembles voucher systems proposed and used today in many countries.
The oldest extant school voucher programs in the United States are the Town Tuitioning programs in Vermontand Maine,beginning in 1869and 1873respectively. Because some towns in these states operate neither local high schools nor elementary schools, students in these towns “are eligible for a voucher to attend [either] public schools in other towns or non-religious private schools. In these cases, the ‘sending’ towns pay tuition directly to the ‘receiving’ schools”.
A system of educational vouchers was introduced in the Netherlands in 1917. Today, more than 70% of pupils attend privately run but publicly funded schools, mostly split along denominational lines.
argued for the modern concept of vouchers in the 1950s,stating that competition would improve schools, cost less and yield superior educational outcomes. Friedman’s reasoning in favor of vouchers gained additional attention in 1980 with the broadcast of his ten part television seriesand the publication of its companion book of the same name(co-written with his wife, who was also an economist). Episode 6 of the seriesand chapter 6 of the book were both entitled, “What’s Wrong with Our Schools” and asserted that permitting parents and students to use vouchers towould expand freedom of choice and produce more well-educated students.
