School vouchers spreading across the country, not just in Wisconsin


Wisconsin isn’t the only state where talk of school vouchers is circulating beneath the Capitol dome.

In his budget speech Wednesday night, Gov. Scott Walker praised the quality of private voucher schools in Wisconsin and described how his proposed expansion of them to multiple cities could help improve students' educational performance.

Pushed by powerful, pro-school-choice lobbyists and a wave of recently elected Republican governors, eight other state legislatures are mulling proposals to either launch first-time programs or, like Wisconsin, expand on voucher programs already in place.
