ON-Lion Letter

"Educational choice promotes equality of social and economic opportunity in a powerful way," according to a December policy brief from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) in Milwaukee.  "Students in all countries stand to benefit from increased diversity in education, as there are rarely one-size-fits-all solutions to complex social subjects -- particularly education."

The brief, "School Choice Across the Globe:  Do other countries have more robust voucher programs than Wisconsin?," was written by WILL president and general counsel Rick Esenberg, WILL lead education-policy analyst Lexi Hudson, and WILL vice president for policy and deputy counsel CJ Szafir.  Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports WILL.

"[S]chool choice is not unique to the United States or Wisconsin, and new ideas can be gained from exploring school choice programs globally," it concludes.  "What appears politically impossible here has been longstanding public policy elsewhere.  The policies of school choice across the globe demonstrate that Wisconsin has both reasons to hope and room to improve."
