Little difference in test scores for Milwaukee public, private schools

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Another report shows that there’s very little difference in test scores between Milwaukee Public School students, and low-income city kids who get state tax money to go to private schools.

The state’s non-partisan Legislative Audit Bureau said it confirmed the results of a study by privately-funded researchers.

That study found no significant difference between voucher students and kids in the state’s largest school district.

In March, the state Department of Public Instruction announced results of its own study – and it found MPS students out-performed those in the private school voucher program. But that study looked at test scores from only a single year.

The research that was confirmed by the state auditors was taken over a five-year period.
