For the second year in a row, newly released data from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction shows that students in the three Parental Choice Programs are outperforming their peers on the ACT, regardless of income. “This is particularly notable because students involved in the Parental Choice Program are predominately low income and are still out scoring their full income counterparts.
