Wisconsin School Choice Coalition Urges Eligibility

Statement from the Wisconsin Federation for Children and School Choice Wisconsin:

“We are pleased that both houses of the legislature have now agreed to expand the number of families eligible for school choice. Last week, Assembly Republicans acknowledged that they would be willing to raise the income eligibility limit in the statewide program to the level long enjoyed in Milwaukee and Racine – 300 percent of the federal poverty level. This week, Senate Republicans agreed to raise the income limit to 220% of the federal poverty level. We are hopeful that in the end, both houses will conclude that all of Wisconsin’s children should have the same opportunity to attend the school of their parent’s choosing. We encourage the legislature to take this step towards equality. A child’s educational opportunities should not be determined by their zip code.”
