School Vouchers in the Trump Era: How Political Ideology and Religion Shape Public Opinion

Policy Brief
2018

Expanding school vouchers is a central component of the Trump Administration’s education agenda.1 However, the extent to which the Administration can fully realize this policy goal may hinge, in part, on the level of public support or opposition for the voucher method of reform and on the particular components of any proposed voucher system.
