Despite 25 years of failing our families, taxpayer-funded vouchers coming to your school district, Congressman Mark Pocan warns

In a column published on Madision365.com, Congressman Mark Pocan writes that, “In recent years, Wisconsin’s taxpayer-funded voucher program has wasted taxpayer dollars and harmed our public schools, but that’s not stopping Republican legislators from expanding this failed program.”

He continues: “In many places, voucher programs began with a honorable intent – give low-income families in tough school districts access to the private school system. That is clearly no longer the case. Now, vouchers are being aggressively pursued by shady lobbying outfits, such as the notorious American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which seeks to take curriculum and financial control away from public accountability.”
