The Brookings Institution released a long-term study earlier this month that examined the effects of school vouchers on eventual college enrollment. The academics had their say, but what do educators—the ones who are interacting with students on a daily basis—and other education-policy advocates have to say about it? Here we share some reactions from Twitter.

We need to empower parents and students to have a diversity of choices in schools, classes, and teachers. #BIVouchers— Nelson R (@nelsonri72) August 23, 2012
The vouchers don't just affect the psychology of the students, it also affects that of the parents (parental satisfaction) #BIVouchers— Bobby Thompson (@SunshineAsAMan) August 23, 2012
Wonder how NYC vouchers differ from other prgrms? Vouchers didn't cover total cost of private school, so still cost to parents. #BIVouchers— Mandy Zatynski (@MandyZatynski) August 23, 2012
