Doyle cheats on his homework

Oh, you mean those charter schools. The MacIver Institute reports today the state of Wisconsin may have submitted a false application for the Race to the Top funding.

Page 240 of Wisconsin’s recently-rejected application begins with this sentence: There is no limit in State law or regulation concerning the number of charter schools that can be authorized or the number of children who can be served by such schools in the state.

Yet, according to Wisconsin State Statutes there is a cap on open enrollment within Wisconsin’s online (otherwise known as virtual) charter schools.

WisStats118.40(8)(h)1.
1. Subject to subds. 3. and 4., beginning in the 2009-10 school year, the total number of pupils attending virtual charter schools through the open enrollment program under s. 118.51 in any school year may not exceed 5,250.
