A complaint has been filed with the US Dept of Justice, Civil Rights Division on behalf of children with disabilities because the voucher system has “discriminated against students with disabilities” and “segregated those students in one portion of the publicly funded educational system.”
This Complaint is brought against the State of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (“DPI”), Messmer Catholic Preparatory School (“Messmer”), and Concordia University School (“Concordia”) by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation Racial Justice Program (ACLU), the ACLU of Wisconsin Foundation (ACLU-WIF), Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW), individual parents D. E. and D.J. on behalf of their children with disabilities.
Civil rights and disability rights organizations are currently investigating the lack of
services for students with disabilities in the Milwaukee Parent Choice Program (MPCP,
also known as the “Voucher” program).
We’d like to speak to parents about their experiences.
