FDL School Board Delays Vote On Opposition To School Choice

14-May-2013

The Fond du Lac School Board last night delayed voting on a resolution opposing the school choice voucher expansion the Governor has proposed. A couple of school choice advocates who spoke say an ad placed by the district in Sunday’s Action Advertiser had too many inaccuracies about school choice. Sean Twohig says for instance what was said about private schools and special needs students. He says the ad was also inaccurate about funding for districts that lose students to school choice. Board member Mark Jurgella says since the resolution was drafted some things have changed. State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt is thinking of filing an open records request over the ad. He wants to know how the district can use taxpayer money to pay for an ad when they haven’t even voted on the resolution yet. The board intends to hold another workshop on the resolution and take it up at their May 28th meeting.

We not need school choice in Fond du Lac. We have a good public system. Thiesfeldt and Gudex have this one wrong.

I do not agree! I school choice my child out of Fond du Lac schools. It means I have to drive, but it is worth it to me to not have them in Fondy. The High School is way to big.

Vouchers will cost taxpayers. As soon a vouchers become available, every current private school family making less than $77,000 will apply for them. That pretty much means tax payers will now foot the bill for all students now enrolled at private schools. Also, taxpayers would have to pay for any students that might want to tranfer from public to private schools. Anyone who says this is not going to cost A LOT has their head in the sand.

Give students and parents a choice. I can't see how that will hurt public schools a bit.

Where is the separation of church and state?
