ON-Lion Letter
Majorities of those surveyed in the Racine and Green Bay school districts favor the expansion of Wisconsin's school-choice program to those areas, according to polls released in May by School Choice Wisconsin (SCW) and the American Federation for Children.  Specifically, 55% of respondents in Racine and 51% in Green Bay support expanding the successful Milwaukee Parental Choice Program to their communities.

Large majorities in both communities -- 71% in Racine and 69% in Green Bay -- also back creating a special-needs scholarship, which is also currently being considered by the state legislature.

And 79% of those polled in Racine and 74% in Green Bay agreed with the statement that "Our children should have the right to the best education right now and shouldn’t have to wait for public schools to get better some day in the future."

The polling was conducted by OnMessage, Inc., in Alexandria, Va.
The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports SCW.
