Education funding should follow student

Change is hard. Institutional change is even harder. For decades, the institution of government has determined where children will be educated. It is not surprising that there is opposition, particularly by the institution of public education, to school vouchers and that vouchers are categorized as a use of "taxpayer money" for private education.

After spending a week in Cuba this year and seeing the effects of government determining the store at which a family will get their groceries, the doctor from whom a person will receive health care, the school and college to which children will be assigned and even determining what career young people will pursue, I believe that vouchers need to become an option in Wisconsin. Taxpayer money is currently used for food funding for low-income families, but the government does not tell them where they must shop. Taxpayer money is currently used for Medicare, but the government does not choose the clinic and doctor for the patient. Funding for education should follow the student, not the government institution. Let the parents who are closest to understanding the needs of their children determine which educational environment is best for their children.
