My Post on Fordham’s Wonk-A-Thon: The Price is Not Right (Yet)

See here for my submission to Fordham’s Wonk-A-Thon on Nevada’s school choice legislation.

My argument is mostly based on this data:

To get some back-of-the-envelope numbers for the Las Vegas market, I looked at this list of thirty-five private schools. Some of the prices were given in ranges, but quick number crunching put the median cost at around $7,000 and the average cost at $10,500.

The Nevada ESA is worth ~5-6K.

You can imagine where I go from there.

Thanks to Mike and team for allowing me to participate.
