WCRIS supports policies that align with its core beliefs:
All children have the right to quality, affordable education. Our State can ensure this right by securing and maintaining exceptional educational options for families, including the provision of government assistance for parents, allowing them to select the educational path most suited for their child’s success.
Economic status should not determine whether a child receives a quality education. Wisconsin must be ever vigilant to maintain access to a wide range of quality educational options for all students.
Our educational system must be designed to facilitate the growth of quality educational institutions, both public and private. Wisconsin must remain committed to supporting successful school innovations and streamlining administrative processes that provide accountability while focusing on promoting school improvement at all schools.
