Wisconsin Supreme Court Rejects School Choice Case
December 13, 2023
The Wisconsin Supreme Court today unanimously denied a petition seeking to halt Wisconsin’s parental choice programs.
“This news will come as a great relief to thousands of Wisconsin families and the schools that serve them. Parents across the state value a program that works for them,” said Nicholas Kelly, president of School Choice Wisconsin.
Kelly thanked the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty for seeking to intervene on behalf of School Choice Wisconsin Action and other parents and students in choice and charter schools and protecting parental choice.
He noted that SCW had launched a significant ad campaign to demonstrate in the court of public opinion the impact of ending parental choice programs. The ads featured students, parents, teachers, and community leaders telling stories of what educational freedom means to them. See the ads here.
Kelly said SCW will continue to make the case for parent choice if petitioners choose to pursue their case in circuit court. “We will continue to make the case forcefully that school choice benefits Wisconsin families,” he said.
