School Choice for all Families
Advocating for high-quality, educational freedom in Wisconsin.
About Parent Choice in Wisconsin
The demand for quality educational options nationwide is on the rise, as is public opinion supporting school choice. In Wisconsin, we are proud to have the oldest school choice program in the country, championed in the 1990s by bipartisan legislators and education leaders who believed low-income students should be able to attend private schools using a taxpayer funded “voucher”.
Today, over 50,000 students across Wisconsin are enrolled in one of four existing, taxpayer-funded parental choice programs. Our schools get results, including higher test scores and better DPI Report Card grades. Wisconsin families want more education options. But current programs will not survive, thrive and expand unless we address major threats.
To address the challenges facing our schools and families head-on, School Choice Wisconsin Action has developed a robust policy and budget agenda and has staff dedicated to advancing our goals. The Outreach Team is hard at work mobilizing schools, families and advocates to make sure our elected officials know that school choice is a valued educational option in communities across Wisconsin and we need their support!
