The Cost of School Vouchers: Who is paying the price?. The Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP) or "voucher" program was enacted in 1989 with very specific goals and objectives. Over time and especially since 2013, the legislature has implemented many changes in the program including a state-wide expansion with few limits on participation and accountability. Heather DuBois Bourenane, Executive Director, Wisconsin Public Education Network Mark Holzman, Superintendent, Manitowoc Public School District and Lisa Quistorf, Superintendent, Two Rivers School District will discuss the program's current implementation and its effects on local schools and community budgets.

The League of Women Voters of Manitowoc County and The Parents & Supporters of MPSD are presenting "The Cost of School Vouchers: Who is paying the price?" at the Manitowoc City Hall, 900 Quay St., at 7 pm on Thursday, April 26. The event is free. The public is invited to participate and light snacks will be provided.
