Poll: 52 % of Wisconsinites favor expansion of private school voucher program

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A new poll shows that a slight majority of Wisconsinites favor an expansion of school choice – in which low-income kids get tax-funded vouchers to attend private schools.

The governor’s proposed state budget would expand the program to up to nine districts where it’s not offered now.

The Marquette Law School polled just over 1,000 people on the issue – and one of every three was from Milwaukee, which has had a voucher program for over two decades.

The poll said 52 percent wanted the choice program expanded either statewide, or at least to larger districts which have some underperforming public schools. 42 percent said the program should not expand – or it should be scrapped altogether. 6 percent had no opinion.

Also, the poll showed that 72 percent have a favorable view of Wisconsin’s public schools, which 18 percent had an unfavorable view. 10 percent had no opinion.

The margin of error in the Marquette is plus-or-minus 5 percent.
