To the Editor:

The new requirements the Wisconsin legislature is considering for Milwaukee’s voucher schools seem quite reasonable (“New Tethers Eyed for Milwaukee Vouchers,” June 17, 2009). After all, the state’s taxpayers are financing the program, and their legislature has every right to regulate what it pays for. Voucher schools and parents have no reason to complain. Indeed, the legislature is to be commended for making up somewhat for its original error of initiating the Milwaukee voucher plan—a plan voters would not have supported in a referendum and which the state supreme court failed to find violative of the state constitution.
