Today in Milwaukee 11,163 children receive vouchers to attend 107 different private schools. What began as an experiment in market-based education reform has grown to be one of the largest educational programs in the state of Wisconsin. Over the past five years, the Public Policy Forum has conducted a census of all schools participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP). The schools' cooperation in this effort has resulted in a 100 percent response rate. Data include such factors as student characteristics, enrollment, facilities, staffing, religious affiliation, curriculum and transportation. The data are useful to parents, taxpayers, and policymakers in understanding if school choice is meeting its goals. Program highlights for 2002-2003 include: (1) Total program enrollment increased 7 percent, the 13th year of growth; (2) Choice participation increased at all grade levels except K5 and 6th; (3) Half of all MPCP students are enrolled in 20 of the 107 participating schools; (4) Seven schools joined the program for the first time this year as seven other schools left the program; (5) Seventy-two religious schools participated in the program this year; (6) The number of non-religious schools grew for the first time since 1998-1999; and (7) Enrollments are at least 90 percent minority in slightly over half of MPCP schools. (Contains 6 charts and 6 tables.)
