Q:

Janet asks: How does one initiate an education voucher program?

"How does one initiate a voucher program?  We are in Maine and moved our child to a private school due to the public classrooms being way too crowded, and our child was not getting enough accelerated work."

Above question asked by an Education.com visitor after reading the article, "Education Vouchers," by the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education (Teachers College, Columbia University):

At the end of the article is some contact information for the Maine Policy Ronin Network in Brunswick, in case you'd like to talk with them to learn more about their experiences.

In addition to the article you previously read on Education.com, the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education has others you may want to review: http://www.ncspe.org/inforead.php?mysub=6

I hope all of the above is helpful to you.
