Big Bad Government a creation of Republican Lawmakers...see what they've done to Taxpayer supported Voucher Schools.

Are Republicans bad managers? Are you kidding?

The following isn't so much another anti-voucher blog posting, than it is a perfect example of irresponsible Republican governance. 

Oddly, this only energizes Republican voters to elected more bad managers.

What follows is pure Republican lawmaking under Scott Walker, Sen. Scott Fitzgerald and Rep. Robin Vos.

Bad managers.  Stunning incompetence:
Journal Times: If you want to open a brand-new voucher school, you don’t need to have a budget and you don’t need a building. You can start accepting students and then figure out the rest later. This is a prime example of putting the cart before the horse — and it needs to be fixed fast.

“You basically fill out a letter of intent. There’s not much else there,” said Jim Bender, president of School Choice Wisconsin, a nonprofit that supports voucher program expansion.
What could and did happen?
Racine’s St. John Fisher Academy high school is a prime example of what can go wrong … a student lost her voucher spot when St. John Fisher closed in 2012 after its first year in operation when it ran out of money. Kandy Helson said she thought the school was sound because the state put it on a list of participating voucher schools in February. She didn’t know how little is actually known about participating schools when the list gets released. “Their list should be accurate and good, like you’re going to be able to use those schools,” she said.
It’s an unbridled free market mess that now uses taxpayer money, passed by Republicans. 

Completing the old saying that "government can’t do anything right…under Republican control."
