Research released today by the Urban Institute shows further favorable long-term outcomes for students who enroll in private school choice programs in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

The Truth about New Jersey’s High Tax Burden
Part IV of the Legal Corruption Series
New Jersey is in a bad way. Our economy is weak and significantly underperforms other states. Our tax system is consistently ranked as the worst in the nation. Our public-sector pensions are in the worst condition of any state, and our unfunded liabilities are at least $202 billion—almost six times the size of the $35 billion annual budget. We have the second-lowest bond rating of any state—save broke Illinois. Businesses, taxpayers, and young adults are leaving our state in droves. Sadly, New Jersey’s future looks even worse.
