MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says he wants Wisconsin parents to have as many choices as possible when educating their children.

Walker says his goal is to improve public schools, but the Republican says when there isn’t enough improvement families should have other options.

Walker spoke earlier today at a school-choice event in Milwaukee.

School choice includes voucher programs where the government helps pay tuition at private schools, including religious schools.

Also attending was Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who says his main concern is that school choice not take funding away from public schools.

The governor told reporters it is possible to expand choice without diverting resources from other schools, though he didn’t explain how that could happen.
