These two quotes got me intrigued:
“We are an independent school. So theoretically it would benefit us financially. But philosophically we do not support it,” says Mary Campbell, education director with Wingra School, a private, independent school in downtown Madison with a tuition of roughly $13,500 a year and an enrollment of 122 students.
EAGLE School in Madison is another private school that would not accept vouchers, according to its director, Carole Mason.
But unlike Wingra, which wouldn’t participate for philosophical reasons, Mason says EAGLE’s stringent admission standards would preclude it from accepting voucher students.
So two private schools already saying they won't participate. It got me wondering about private schools in Madison. I found this:

Nearly every single one was religion based and of course those schools have already come out in favor of vouchers. Why? Cha ching. These churches have private schools so they can raise revenue and indoctrinate kids into their religion. I'm not saying all of these schools have bad teachers, but what makes them so much better than public. The two private schools quoted above want to keep enrollment small and opening up to vouchers would change that. I do believe that Walker wants to privatize education and, at the same time, make sure more kids are going to a religious school. I realize this is speculation, but he is one ultra religious guy.
