The growing enthusiasm for school choice reflects the views found in a recent survey School Choice Wisconsin commissioned. In the survey, conducted in February 2022 by OnMessage Inc., 65 percent agreed that income restrictions need to be eliminated so that every Wisconsin family has the ability to send their children to a school that fits them.
Those findings align with results from a recent Marquette Law School Poll. “Extending vouchers for students to attend private or religious schools statewide and without family income limits is supported by 58%,” says Marquette Law School’s news release on the poll.
