In a speech last week at Harvard University, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos noted that a new study from the Urban Institute finds that a Florida program designed to expand access to private schools has helped more low income students enroll in college.

In this episode of the podcast, Matt Chingos, one of the authors of the study, talks with Marty West about how the Florida Tax Credit scholarship program works, how the effects of the program were studied, and how his findings fit in with those of other studies of voucher and tax credit programs.

Matt wrote about the study for EdNext in “Private School Choice Increases College Enrollment in Florida. Could It Work Nationally?
