    • Abstract:
      The article presents a legislative view of the development of the Wisconsin Parental Choice Plan mandated for the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The objective of the article's author is to place the choice initiative within the context of the educational needs of African American children. The article enumerates the author's reasons for not supporting a legislation permitting voucher although he strongly agrees with parental empowerment, the philosophy underlying choice. It then outlines an approach to parental choice in the city of Milwaukee. It also reviews and discusses public school choice initiatives in Wisconsin and across the U.S.
