Greg Continues to Run Up the Score on Jay Mathews

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Another day, another couple of style points for Greg. North Carolina’s legislature passed a tax credit for special needs students with an overwhelming bipartisan majority in each chamber. Down in Louisiana, lawmakers expanded the tax deduction for private school students, also by an overwhelming bipartisan margin.

Jay’s suffering is not done yet. Wisconsin is very near to expanding the size and scope of the Milwaukee program, and creating a new program in Racine, and there is more game to be played in Big-10 country.

    Let me see, the Milwaukee program has been around for years. It has failed to add any value. It is a failure. OK lets expand it then.

    Insanity – doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

    Yesterday I asked you to produce a single high quality random assignment study for one of your favored policies. I specifically asked that you not send any shallow propaganda, but a high quality random assignment study.

    After sending several pieces of shallow propaganda, you managed to send a study, but not a random assignment study.

    Off the top of my head, I could produce two random assignment studies from Milwaukee showing positive results- one a Harvard study and the other from Princeton.

    Not to mention the six studies finding that vouchers in Milwaukee improved outcomes in public schools. But even more impressive are the NO studies, in Milwaukee or anywhere else, showing that vouchers hurt outcomes in public schools.
