The U.S. Department of Justice has closed a long-running investigation into whether the Milwaukee private school voucher program discriminates against students with disabilities, with no apparent findings of major wrongdoing.

The Justice Department informed the Wisconsin education department late last month that no further action is warranted beyond the materials it reviewed, meetings it conducted, and changes it requested the department make to its administration of the voucher program two years ago—directives the state department largely could not act on under state law.

The Justice Department left the door open to investigating future complaints.
