School choice will help students succeed

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Wealthy parents have always had access to a variety of educational options. Unfortunately, many families in Green Bay are unable to afford private school and the public schools are not always the right fit. This is why expanding parental choice and independent charter school options in the Green Bay area would be a step in the right direction.

Both independent charter schools and private parental choice schools have much greater flexibility to recruit dynamic, specialized teachers and develop innovative curricula while maintaining accountability. This allows them to offer an alternative learning environment for students with specific needs.

Assembly Bill 40 proposes an expansion of these alternative options to communities like Green Bay and Madison where educational options have not existed before. These types of schools have made an impact on children in Milwaukee and Racine, and have the potential to do the same in other cities facing similar challenges.

As one who deeply cares about our community, I truly believe expanding quality educational options will have remarkable effects on the success of our students. The parents and children of Green Bay deserve that chance.
