    Well a voucher can be thought of generically. Most systems you get a 'voucher' it just lets you send your kid to the one school and since there's no question where you're going to use the voucher, no need to even bother sending it. Point of course is to give parents choice in the schools they send their kids to. Your system is a wrinkle of course but essentially your community is deciding to pick up the tab in the neighboring district.

    I don't yet know. I assume Brooklyn wants to be paid somehow.

    Doesn't the SCHOOL get to decide which students it wants to take in under a voucher system?

    Depends on the system you set up. I mean if a school is legitimately 'full' its full but in NJ you can opt to pay the tuition and while it could be an issue, I haven't heard of it being an issue before.

    In Ohio, some of the academies for gifted children may have entrance requirements, but a voucher that allows a transfer between public schools it is not a factor. It is basically a shifting of funding per student. The State funds the schools based on headcount. More students, more funding.
