South Carolina Amicus Brief: Eidson v. South Carolina Department of Education

Education scholars T. Jameson Brewer, Joshua Cowen, Suzanne Eckes, Christopher Lubienski, Julie Mead, and Kevin Welner submitted this amicus brief to South Carolina's Supreme Court. They are seeking to provide the Court with evidence regarding the national experience with voucher programs, describing the likely harms that Senate Bill 39 (Education Scholarship Trust Fund) will cause to students in South Carolina. They draw on their training and expertise in education policy, decades of cumulative research related to school choice policies that has generated dozens of peer-reviewed studies, and their experience as K-12 educators.
