Vouchers Could be Costly for Sheboygan

by

MADISON, WI (WHBL) - Governor Scott Walker’s school voucher plan could cost the Sheboygan Area School District up to one-point-four million dollars in state aid, according to an analysis by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau.  The report indicates that the maximum losses would occur if 110 students took tax-funded vouchers to go to private schools.  A portion of that loss could be made up by raising property taxes.  Walker’s budget would expand vouchers to 9 school districts, including Sheboygan.  Walker says it would give kids in under-performing schools a chance for a better education.  Opponents say the report confirms the high cost to local taxpayers, and like other government programs, could go out of control in the future.
