July 2009...from The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: The New Schools Approval Board, authorized by the Wisconsin Legislature to control the entry of schools into Milwaukee's private school voucher program, gave a green light last week to only three new voucher schools for this fall. Each of them involves an existing education program that has not received public voucher payments previously. The board stopped 16 schools from opening, generally start-up operations.
