State legislators may soon decide the future of the controversial statewide expansion of Gov. Scott Walker’s taxpayer-funded school voucher plan. A school voucher is a certificate issued by the government, which parents can use to pay for their child’s private school education.
Stevens Point public schools could also become candidates for the voucher program in the near future. A community forum discussing the impact of the vouchers was held Wednesday, May 15, at the Portage County Annex Building.
