Increases in School Choice Funding

This past Tuesday, Governor Evers signed into law a bill that increases school choice funding. According to Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, this bill narrows the funding gap between private schools in the choice program and traditional public schools by increasing the amount per student that schools in the choice program receive from sixty percent to seventy six percent of what public schools receive.

In education, people frequently say the money should follow the student. This funding increase for students in a voucher program is one of the best examples of that really happening. Getting more parity is good, but right now our choice program is restricted by income and zip code. We believe all parents should have educational freedom for their children.
