Voucher Schools, Subsidizing the Rich with Special Interest Welfare

Goal thermometer

Perhaps Wisconsin should have a “For Sale” sign hanging from the state capitol. Or on our public schools.

Scott Walker and the Tea Party Republicans are at it again, selling off Wisconsin, and our children’s future, to the highest bidder and giving $94 million dollars of taxpayer money to unaccountable, private voucher and charter schools, and vitrually ZERO dollars to our 870,000 public school children and their classrooms.

Despite the fact that children in public schools academically outperform their private voucher school students, Walker and Republicans in the legislature want to expand this failed academic experiment. That’s no surprise, as private school special interests have lined Walker’s campaign coffers!

But backed by the voices of thousands of people like you from around the state, Assembly Democrats are leading the charge against this failed voucher experiment. Just today, we delivered 16,109 petition signatures to stop the unaccountable private school voucher expansion.

Help the Assembly Democrats fight for fairness in K-12 education today by helping us today with your contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10. We need to elect more Democrats to the state legislature to stand against Scott Walker and the Tea Party Republicans who are running the legislature.

Why are we as taxpayers subsidizing families who can already afford to send their kids to private school at the expense of our public school kids across Wisconsin? When will these special interest, taxpayer funded handouts to Scott Walker’s closest friends and biggest contributors end?

Assembly Democrats are leading the charge against expanding and funding unaccountable, private voucher schools and standing up for funding our public schools and the education all Wisconsin children deserve. But we need your help.

With your contribution of $100, $50, $25 or $10, help us send Scott Walker and the Tea Party Republicans a message that we will not accept their unaccountable, private voucher school experiment because it hurts our kids and our neighborhood public schools.

Thank you for all that you do.


State Rep. Peter Barca Assembly Democratic Leader
