Across the Divide: Where is School Choice Headed Under President Trump?

For years, state lawmakers have been expanding school choice throughout Wisconsin, allowing public dollars to follow kids to private schools. Now, the Trump administration is looking to expand voucher programs nationally.

WUWM and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel held a community conversation, titled  Across the Divide: Where is School Choice Header Under President Trump?, at Anodyne Coffee in Walker’s Point on September 19 to bring together people with different perspectives on school choice.

WUWM’s education reporter, Rachel Morello, and Erin Richards, an education reporter with the Journal Sentinel, moderated the conversation between students, education leaders and concern citizens.
