Another Misleading Press Release on Education Funding

In response to the latest press release from school choice opponents, a little context is needed. Unfortunately, those protecting the status quo use a narrow set of data to create a false narrative.

Joint Statement On Wisconsin Budget Proposal

Are working class families outside of Milwaukee & Racine too "rich" for educational opportunity for their children?

Ed Willing I agree. This is frustrating. My son shouldn't have to possibly lose his ability to attend a choice school because his parents make more money either. Once you're in, you're in. But any interruption invalidates your qualification. This discriminates against the middle class.
Jennifer Thomas It's going to get worse with Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
George F. Ashley That's stupid.
