In an opinion piece regarding Secretary DeVos' education agenda, the Baltimore Sun referenced Kevin Carey's New York Times article on dismal voucher results:

Kevin Carey, director of education policy for New America, a non-partisan think tank, wrote in the New York Times last month, "a wave of new research has emerged suggesting that private school vouchers may harm students who have received them." In Indiana, for example, voucher students who transferred to private schools experienced significant losses in achievement in mathematics and saw no improvement in reading. Researchers found similar results in Louisiana and Ohio.

Kevin Carey is the vice president for education policy and knowledge management at New America and directs the Education Policy program.
