Governor Maintains Stance On School Voucher Expansion Proposal


Governor Scott Walker is standing by his state budget proposal to expand the private school voucher program to more Wisconsin cities. The governor's budget would allow the taxpayer-funded vouchers to be issued in larger districts with multiple failing schools. Republican lawmakers this week floated a possible alternative, in the form of a tax credit for parents with kids in private schools. Walker says it's worth discussing, but he believes the voucher plan is the right move. The governor says all options will be considered though, as the Legislature continues work on the budget bill. Walker says he believes they are in a good position to get his voucher plan approved, although some tweaks might be needed along the way.

If the schools are broken, fix them, don't move the problem to private schools, it's a parenting problem,not a school proble.
