The Republican governor of Wisconsin says he’ll keep his promise to the public to get a state-funded voucher program implemented for students in poor neighborhoods, but he says he wants more feedback on how the system will work.
“The way I view it is I’m going to keep on telling you as much as I can until we get the data,” Walker said in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Walker has been a staunch critic of the Milwaukee County voucher program.
He has criticized the county voucher program for not offering enough help to people struggling to pay for college, and for not giving enough help for parents to get their children into a college.
He also said that the county needs to expand its programs for low-income students.
Walker says he will implement a voucher program if he is elected governor in 2018.
He says he believes voucher programs are the only way to help poor students.
“I believe that if we don’t have a voucher, we’re going to have a huge problem,” Walker told the Journal Sentinel on Thursday.
The Milwaukee County government is currently running a voucher pilot program.
Walker wants to make sure voucher programs help the poorest students, including students from high-poverty neighborhoods, by giving them a financial aid package that is comparable to what private and public schools are offering.
Walker also wants to improve the quality of the voucher program and create incentives for private and charter schools to enroll students.
But he has said he wants the voucher programs to be available to more students, and he has pledged to hold public meetings to get the program up and running.
The voucher program was created by Walker in 2015 and has been the focus of criticism from his critics.
They say it is a giveaway to students from low- and middle-income families.
Walker was one of the first governors in Wisconsin to push for the voucher.
He initially called it a “voucher-to-pay-for-charter” program.
But critics say that voucher programs only serve to subsidize private schools, and that the program is being used to boost the private sector.
The vouchers have since been expanded in several states.
Wisconsin is the second state to expand the voucher system, following New Jersey, where students were offered a $10,000 voucher for each $10 they spent on tuition.
Walker’s voucher plan has been criticized for creating a “one-size-fits-all” voucher program that leaves out poor students from wealthier communities.
But Walker says that voucher program is just the beginning.
“There’s a lot of things we can do, but we can’t do them all at once,” Walker tells the Journal-Sentinel.
He added that he wants to increase the voucher number from 15 to 20, and said that his goal is to get 20 percent of all vouchers.
The state has received more than 5,700 vouchers, with some recipients receiving as much money as $4,000 per student.
Walker and other Republican governors in the state have pushed to expand voucher programs in states that have been successful in other ways.
In 2016, a study showed that voucher enrollment in New Jersey and Illinois was nearly 10 times higher than private school enrollment, and nearly six times higher in Wisconsin.
But other studies have found that voucher recipients are less likely to graduate from college and that they are less well educated.
Walker is also calling on other states to expand their voucher programs.
“We need more states to join us and be part of this,” Walker says.
“It is time to expand our programs to more families.”
