As a single mom, Nancy Nieto needed more than a school. She needed a place where her children would excel and be treated like family.
That’s exactly what she found at St. Thomas More — a Green Bay school that participates in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program. There, the welcoming environment, quality instruction and personal attention are a tremendous blessing to parents like Nancy.
Nancy’s hope is that more schools in Wisconsin would be a blessing to kids like hers. And many schools would . . . if they received the same amount of funding that public schools receive per student.
If you struggle to see the sense in setting a student’s worth based on the school they attend, you’re not alone. Education freedom is about funding students, not systems, structures or institutions.
Now is the time to let your state representatives know that students don’t become less valuable when they choose the school that’s best for them. Click to find and contact your legislators and let them know that students should receive the same level of resources regardless of the school they attend.
