New research is adding fuel to one of the most heated debates on Indiana’s modern education scene. A new study released Thursday suggests no measurable difference between students using school vouchers and their peers studying in public schools.

According to a report from the bipartisan Center for Tax and Budget Accountability in Chicago, school choice in Indiana is “designed to funnel taxpayer money to private schools, with little evidence that demonstrates improved academic achievement for students who are most at risk.” The study compared Indiana’s program with those in Milwaukee, Cleveland and Washington, D.C. – some of the oldest voucher programs in the country – where they say they found similar results.
