5-22-13 fdl community forum on voucher program

The Fond du Lac School District and Fond du Lac Area Retired Educators are hosting a community forum this week on the governor’s controversial proposal to expand the private school voucher program.  Retired teacher, Earl Jewett, says the forum will focus on the local impact of the proposed expansion.  Jewett says majority of studies have shown the voucher program has had shown no noticeable improvement in student achievement in Milwaukee.  Jewett says the statewide report card criteria used by the governor to expand the program to Fond du lac and eight other communities isn’t an accurate barometer.  The forum will be held at 7pm Wednesday in the Goodrich Little Theatre.  Panelists will include Fond du lac superintendent, Dr. Jim Sebert, school board President Elizabeth Hayes,  North Fond du lac superintendent Aaron Sadoff, and former Racine superintendent and UW professor Jim Shaw.
