Tell Legislators if You Oppose or Support Vouchers
Gov. Walker’s proposed biennial budget would create a special needs vouchers education program.
Parents throughout Wisconsin have indicated their concern about special needs vouchers. They are concerned about students and parents losing their essential IDEA rights, the cherry-picking of students with less significant disabilities, a lack of qualified teachers and therapists, and the drain on scarce funding from local public schools to unaccountable private settings. Many people believe this controversial proposal should be removed from the state budget and debated separately.
A short on-line survey was designed to gather statewide feedback on special needs vouchers to share with media and policymakers. Parents, community members, educators, school officials, and others are strongly encouraged to take the survey and share it with others.
