Evers is proposing that private schools must complete all the steps of accreditation prior to participating in the choice programs. This change creates a catch 22 for new schools – the school could not accept students on a voucher until they completed the entire accreditation process but they cannot complete accreditation without students in the building.
Evers will seek to cap enrollment in voucher schools while placing a moratorium on the expansion of independent charters. Each of these moves would only serve to limit educational options for Wisconsin’s families least able to access alternatives to failing neighborhood schools.
The central problem with SSDI is that for disabled workers who could reasonably make a return to the labor force through training or rehabilitation, there are few incentives and often not enough support.
