MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A proposal in the works for two years that's designed to make more information available about the performance of private schools participating in Wisconsin's voucher program has been introduced.
Chairmen of the Senate and Assembly's education committees unveiled the bill on Wednesday.
The measure would allow for private schools that accept taxpayer-funded vouchers to be kicked out of the program if students don't perform well. The measure also includes voucher schools in the state report card for the first time.
Rep. Steve Kestell says the goal is to give parents the best information possible while making sure all their options are quality ones.
Sen. Luther Olsen says he and Kestell worked with key stakeholders to reach consensus on every aspect of the bill, but that was always possible.
