Like us on Facebook: School Funding Reform for Wisconsin
To the left are pie charts summarizing the financial impact of the expansions of the statewide and Racine voucher programs on school districts, grouped by state senate district - not all communities have private schools receiving new vouchers this year, so your school district (and senate district) may not appear. Senators' names and contact information are included for your use - consider contacting your senator and expressing your thoughts on vouchers in Wisconsin! All told, reductions total more than $16 million statewide.

Our mission: To support wisconsin's k-12 public schools.
School Funding Reform for Wisconsin is a volunteer grassroots organization begun in 2010 by a group of concerned citizens in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, and today we have members from the Wausau, Wisconsin Rapids and Amherst areas as well. While we continue to work towards changing the failed formula that has been used for the past 20 years to fund our public schools, we are also focused on raising awareness in our communities of efforts underway in Wisconsin and elsewhere to shift public school funding to private schools. We believe the privatization of our educational system is wrong for our communities and wrong for Wisconsin.
