Minnesota Education Association (An NEA affiliate). - "Vouchers would further limit already tight financing that causes districts to use outdated textbooks, computers and other equipment, to increase class sizes and to scrimp on teachers."[1]


Professor Helen Ladd of Duke University co-wrote a book about education in New Zealand, where a voucher system is in place, and concluded that schools "were even worse off than they were before [the implementation of the voucher system], because motivated parents took advantage of the opportunity to move their children ... and left behind in the traditional public schools even greater concentrations of disadvantaged students."[2]
