Many states have opened their public schools to competition. Indiana has set up an expansive voucher program that covers students in families that have incomes below $61,000 a year. Wisconsin has expanded school choice programs in Milwaukee and Racine. Ohio will give tuition vouchers to as many as 60,000 students by 2013. Under Louisiana’s ambitious new school choice program, some 380,000 poor and middle-class students in low-performing schools will be offered a voucher worth up to $8,500. And Illinois? Left in the dust.
