ABSTRACT
This article explains that voucher plan or school choice program offers a way for reforming the educational system in the U.S. A voucher or entitlement plan provides that public funds for schooling should be distributed through certificates supplied to the parents of schoolchildren. And these vouchers would be redeemable by the school of the parents' choice. That is the reason it is also called school choice program.
