GB Gazette: A plan to kick poor-performing schools out of the state’s taxpayer-subsidized voucher program is generating little support in the Legislature so far … In the works for two years, the bill would require for the first time that private schools in the voucher program report a wide range of performance information to the state. Public schools, including charters, already provide the data.
(It) would also give a score to every public, charter and voucher school based on data collected during the 2014 academic year. The scores would be in five categories: reading and math, achievement and growth in those areas, college and career readiness, closing gaps in student achievement and graduation rates, and student engagement.
Hey, where have we heard this story before...oh yeah, Paul Ryan said the same thing about our unread Republican low information politicians. See the Ryan picture:
Vos isn't happy a few party members went public first. He's surprised that anyone would jeopardize their plan. He calls it "outreach:"
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a staunch voucher schools backer, said that Kestell did not do enough outreach with other lawmakers before writing the bill.
While Walker has been supportive of passing some sort of school accountability measure, he’s been noncommittal on Olsen and Kestell’s bill.
