Thanks to blogger TeacherKen for drawing my attention to this startling story about a failed voucher school in Milwaukee.

A small religious school called LifeSkills Academy closed “in the dead of night” in December, after collecting $200,000 in taxpayer funds for the year. It became a voucher school in 2008 and had collected some 2 million dollars since then. By the time it closed, its enrollment had dwindled to only 66 students.

In the 2012-2013 school year, only one of its 66 students was proficient in reading or math.

Recall that Governor Scott Walker wants more voucher schools in Wisconsin.
