Special Needs Vouchers Not Needed
A cautionary tale, perhaps, for anyone who might be affected by what lawmakers do in Madison.

A complete shock to advocacy groups and a tale of warning for everyone else, says Terry Hart-Ellis, with a group trying to stop special needs vouchers
Special needs vouchers have been successfully lobbied against by various groups for years. Hart-Ellis suggests that’s why lawmakers had to insert the new proposal in the dark of the night.
