This is because Sweden's voucher scheme coincided with a host of other reforms, most significantly a change in the national curriculum inwhich emphasised individualised learning over teacher instruction. But, in fact, other school districts and states have had class size reductions and professional development enhancements with good effect — without the threat of vouchers, and school districts and states have had similar positive effects by strong accountability measures.

If the pupils who received vouchers differ from those who don't—perhaps simply by coming from the sort of go-getting family that elbows its way to the front of every queue—any effect might simply be the result of any number of other factors. Florida's program allows corporations to funnel taxes they would have paid to the state instead to scholarship funds that help students attend private schools. The report came up with several reasons why Sweden has seen the steepest decline in student performance of all the countries ranked. To measure the impact of school choice on student outcomes, one has to isolate the effect of the vouchers net of other reforms.
