That property tax bill you just paid makes clear where most of your money is going. It breaks down the amount of your property tax that is going to the city, the county, the school district and the local technical college district. But the breakdown does not include the costs of funding voucher schools in Wisconsin. And that number is growing rapidly. Wisconsin taxpayers are on the hook for more than $54 million in state spending on voucher schools, which allow students to attend private schools at taxpayer expense. Some lawmakers in Madison have introduced legislation to at least force the state to show on our tax bills just how much of our money is going to fund voucher schools. Recent legislation would also freeze the number of participants in the program, would require teachers in the voucher program to be licensed, and would make sure the amount given to voucher schools by the state is not more than they charge in tuition. Because currently that is the case. Many voucher schools in Wisconsin charge less in tuition than they receive in voucher payments. That shouldn’t be the case. If we’re going to shell out millions of dollars, there needs to be some oversight. And taxpayers deserve to know just what these voucher schools are actually costing us.
