Milwaukee voucher Schools can't vouch for graduates

Postby jonnygothispen » Sat Feb 24, 2018 12:09 am

Because they're kaput. 19 out of the 30+ voucher schools that have folded in Milwaukee are unable to provide their graduates with any proof they made the grade.

"They told me to get a GED." When one graduate applied for college.

"Today, Democrats serving on the legislature’s Joint Finance Committee (JFC) released a memo from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau which revealed that nearly $300 million dollars in taxpayer money have been given to private schools.

In the 2017-19 biennium so far, voucher schools have received $269.6 million in state funding, while public schools have seen a $90.6 million reduction in state aid.

Approximately $475 million of taxpayer dollars were paid to voucher schools over the 2015-17 biennium, during which time public schools in those districts faced a $150 million aid reduction

Private school voucher programs in Wisconsin have already received over $2.5 billion [$2,576,900,000 approx.] in total state funding, and that number is only growing."

Hasn't posted for quite awhile. He's either too wrapped in something right now, or, he might be posting under a different Foron name for some reason.

It's an older one who hadn't posted much recently....until shortly after Jonny stopped. It's just a hunch.

A doppelganger kept in reserved? Maybe, but that speculation is more in Penquin's repertoire.

Although there are the aquatic rodent and the vertically challenged Forons.

and a much smaller quantity of excrement too . . . nice . . .
the low rise castor canadensis linnaeus 1758 might have two for some administrative reason which i can somewhat make out, but why would jonnygotthispen? i certainly hope he didn't make like a tree; that would be very unfortunate . . .
attempted insults repeated for the 300th time by monochrome crybabies notwithstanding (sieve! sieve! sieve! sieve!) i just don't see it . . .

My guess is jman111. It is just a hunch. One disappears, the other appears, the moniker starts with j kind of hunch. Whatever. Other than for the pleasure of having a sense of the personalities around here being confirmed, I don't care very much.

Dealing with stuff... Just trying to reprogram to argue politics less, and avoid negative manipulators who lie about others to take something from them.
