  • Brief review of November 7 meeting-
school vouchers
School Vouchers

What is the Impact of Vouchers on Rural Districts?

The IMMEDIATE impact on school vouchers is financial. School funding has two formats; sum sufficient (the amount required to fund a program) and sum certain (a specific dollar amount, then divided).

  • Wisconsin Parental Choice Program – This program is sum sufficient = WHATEVER the cost, it is then fully funded.
  • State Funding Formula – The state aide (School Funding) is sum certain = A Specific dollar amount is specified by the legislature and then divided through the formula.
  • Fiscal Impact on Rural Districts– funding for school vouchers ($3.2 million) is allocated FIRST, the remainder is sent through the funding formula

The greater dollars to vouchers the fewer dollars to rural districts

School Vouchers

What is the Impact of Vouchers on Rural Districts?

Republican Party of Wisconsin; 2013 Convention Resolutions

2013-1 – Education

“parents of school age children be given vouchers or tax credits designed to give all parents equal freedom of choice in education without regard to their financial means;”

School Administrators Alliance

A taxpayer funded entitlement program for private school children

Won’t “deny” vouchers to children already enrolled in private schools

2012-13; In Wisconsin 97,488 were enrolled in private schools

Voucher Payment was $6,442; 2013-15 is $7,210 for K-8 and $7,856 for 9-12

What is the Impact of Vouchers on Rural Districts?

School Administrators Alliance - continued

Using 2012-13 private school enrollment and 2013-15 budget allocations for private school vouchers, the estimated cost of a State-wide expansion of vouchers will cost taxpayers over $700,000,000

The simplest question; Where will these dollars come from?

Raise sales tax?

Raise income tax?

Raise property tax?

Reduce the allocation to public education?

Gov. Tommy Thompson is quoted as saying “Wisconsin can’t afford two systems of education”

School Vouchers

What is the Impact of Vouchers on Rural Districts?

The new biennial budget increased allowable tax deductions for private school tuition K-12 ($4,000 for K-8 and $10,000 for 9-12).

$6,543 is the allowable deduction for post secondary (college).

This reduced expected State revenue by $30 million.

Expansion of private school vouchers is a STATE wide concern;

Opposition to the expansion of private school vouchers is based on:

  • Vouchers have not been shown to improve student achievement
  • Vouchers reduce public (taxpayer) accountability
  • Vouchers reduce resources available for Public School children
