Study finds no real differences between choice, MPS students

    A new study says the vast majority of students in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and Milwaukee Public Schools show “no statistically significant differences in student achievement growth.”
    The analysis, conducted by University of Arkansas education professor Patrick J. Wolf, examined the three years since the university’s School Choice Demonstration Project began studying Milwaukee; the next report will analyze choice and MPS schools with regard to high school graduation rates.
    A statement from School Choice Wisconsin said the results "are noteworthy given that taxpayer support for students in the MPCP is $6,442 per pupil, compared to $14,011 in MPS, and has been frozen in real terms for the last decade. During that same period, MPS experienced an 18 percent increase in real per pupil spending."
