The parents of more than 260,000 Wisconsin K-12 students exercise some form of educational choice, according to an August study from the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy in Madison, Wis.

"Choice in education is not the exception, it is the norm in Wisconsin," MacIver president Brett Healy said.  "Our MacIver Educational Choice Census shows that parents across Wisconsin embrace alternatives to the public school that bureaucrats dictate upon them based solely on where they live."

The MacIver Educational Choice Census reveals that 261,301 Wisconsin schoolchildren are educated in a place other than their traditional, geographically assigned public school.  That's up 17.7% from the 222,086 children from the last MacIver census.

Statewide, the parents of more than 25% of students exercised choice, and in Milwaukee, the parents of almost four out of every five students exercised some form of choice over where they attend school.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports the MacIver Institute.
