ON-Lion Letter
A new website, www.GetEducatedNow.com, is devoted to keeping schools, parents, and community leaders comprehensively informed about the latest developments surrounding the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP).

This year will be one of unprecedented challenges to MPCP.  The website will always have the latest, most-trustworthy information about those challenges and what can be done to help meet them.  It is also archived and searchable.

In February, for example, GetEducatedNow.com catalogued numerous provisions in Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's budget bill that would adversely impact MPCP.  They include, among many others, requirements that participating private schools abide by the state's public open-meeting and open-records laws and administer some state tests.

The site is sponsored by School Choice Wisconsin, which is substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.
