MADISON (WKOW) -- Public schools students will receive no preference over those already in private schools in competition for the limited number of taxpayer-subsidized school vouchers available this fall.
Gov. Scott Walker and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos say that was not the Legislature's intent, and Walker notes he's open to addressing the issue in the fall.
The law, as written only, gives preference to public school students if fewer than 500 students apply. If more than 500 apply, as expected, the only preference given is for siblings of students already in the school.
