The effects of the schooling voucher system with respect to higher education enrolment
Lerarenbeurs leidt tot weinig extra scholingsdeelname van docenten
This study investigates the additionality of this scheme with respect to higher education enrolment.
The central conclusion is that the additionality is limited. Out of every ten vouchers, one is used for schooling that would not have taken place without such a voucher, one voucher is not used, and eight are used for higher education enrolment which would have taken place anyhow.
The additionality increases with study duration. The additionality could be improved by limiting the supply of vouchers to requests for studies with a duration of more than one year.
