EP 5: Wisconsin Vouchers and Special Education: How kids are kept out, kicked out, and not served


Subscribe:


THE RIGHT WING WAR ON EDUCATION:

Patti and Kirk spoke with Nicki Vander Meulen and Martha Siravo. Nicki is an attorney, advocate for kids with special needs, and member of the Madison Metropolitan School District Board. Martha coordinates Madtown Mommas and Disability Advocates which supports parents and caregivers of students with disabilities.

They helped us understand how why the voucher system has decimated the funds available for special education, and how the voucher system all-to-frequently hurts kids with special needs.
