Homework 2c: Chapter 11 1. Studies that identify the effect of a voucher program on the student achievement of those who use vouchers typically do so by comparing the achievement of students who used the voucher to switch to a different school to the achievement of otherwise similar students who wanted to but could not use the voucher to switch to a different school. Will such studies capture the effects of increased competition on the inefficient schools in the voucher-eligible area? Explain. 2. Several states currently mandate that school district boundaries follow county lines, while other states allow several school districts to locate in the same county. Assume that county size is approximately the same in both of these groups of states. Suppose both groups of states are considering implementing school vouchers, and proponents in both groups of states argue that increased competition will lead to greater efficiency. Which group of states is more likely to achieve greater efficiency gains?
