“A small private school participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program abruptly closed in the middle of December, but not before collecting more than $200,000 from taxpayers this academic year to educate students who now attend other schools, state officials confirmed.
LifeSkills Academy, a K-8 school that had dwindled to 66 students, appears to have closed around Dec. 12, according to a letter sent to the school from the Department of Public Instruction.”
I hear this shady take-the-public-money-‘n’-run stuff is legal for voucher schools in Wisconsin.
Also legal: Only having 1 of 66 students demonstrate proficiency in reading or math in 2012-’13.
Get thyself to AnnieJo’s post to get the rest of the story including where these voucher grifters are getting public money for their latest enterprise.
Hint: It’s warmer than Wisconsin.
