What a racket: Wisconsin voucher school can take WI $, close in the night, and never give $ back to WI

“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.

  2. The Wisconsin Constitution says NO SECTARIN SCHOOLS. so they will close soon in Wisconsin. Like Walkers truth in sentencing sent Prisoners to several states in 1997. After several years some found a honest judge. It took years because they are one in a million. The prisoners came home because that darn constitution did not allow it. Al we can do is hope some day a Honest judge will end another of Walkers get rich quick schemes. I do not believe they will find one in Wisconsin like the last time. It will take a federal judge.
