It is obvious that the expanded voucher program was not meant to help struggling students. Instead, it is proving to be nothing more than an expensive taxpayer subsidy for private school students. (One Wisconsin Now)

What can I do about it?

It’s vital to let your legislators know that we should be supporting our public schools and not diverting more taxpayer dollars to private voucher schools. Even though the plan to expand taxpayer-funded private voucher schools to every district in Wisconsin has passed, the fight is not over.  In the next budget the school privatization forces will try to take off the limits on the program.  Send a message to your legislators, sign the petition, write a letter to the editor! Take action now.
