When progressives took control of the Wisconsin Supreme Court with the election of Justice Janet Protasiewicz in April, they began lining up petitions to overturn policies they dislike. One of the first targets is Wisconsin’s school-choice program, which gives more than 50,000 children the chance at a better education.
According to the lawsuit, funded by the progressive Minocqua Brewing Company SuperPac, Wisconsin’s choice program violates the state’s requirement that public funds be used for “public purposes.” The petition for original action at the state Supreme Court calls school choice a “cancer” and a “predatory scheme” and says the state Legislature “has been attacking Wisconsin’s public schools under the guise of providing school choice for over a decade.”
