It's one thing to be a professional conservative spin meisters like Brian Schimming, vice chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party and WIBA fill-in talk host, but it's something completely different to even suggest the WKCE statewide test scores aren't a legitimate way to measure progress.
"Well first of all, I take...ha-ha...issue with some of those...some of those tests, and some of those studies. But even without that, the Milwaukee school district is so troubled..."
Republicans like Schimming don't care about the numbers and the voucher failure, it's now all about school safety. Nice way to duck the research. Here's audio from WPR:
Are vouchers limited to low income students only? If so, then the comparison needs to be between public school low income students and the voucher studentsReplyDelete
Anon, but wasn't it the SCHOOL that was failing AND failing the student to achieve, regardless of income? Wasn't that the whole argument for school vouchers? That somehow private schools would lift poor and underperforming students because "failing" public schools could not?ReplyDelete
