Dressed in t-shirts printed with “School Choice Works” the EverGreen Academy private voucher school today paraded a large group of students before the Wisconsin Joint Finance Committee hearing at Alverno College.
Parading students to lobby for voucher legislation or other policy changes has been a tradition over the last 25 years.
St. Marcus marched students, on more than one occasion, from their school to the Malcolm X facility demanding possession of the building.
This is in the tradition of the voucher movement leadership, for years, loading students onto buses, during school hours, and taking them to Madison to fill the halls of the State Capitol building for political lobbying.
If Milwaukee Public Schools attempted to do this, it would be portrayed as scandalous.
