PPF voucher research and the Supreme Court(s)

Jay Bullock, a MPS teacher and blogger (Folkbum's Rambles and Rants), notes that the Forum's latest research on Milwaukee's voucher program did not get great media coverage. His blog entry comes in response to the introduction of the voucher program as an issue in the race between Annette Ziegler and Linda Clifford for Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Whether or not you agree with Folkbum's point, if you're a potential state Supreme Court Justice you might be interested in knowing that there is precedent for the Forum's research to be considered at a "supreme" level. In fact, our work was cited by U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter in his dissent in the Zelman case, which held 5-4 that Cleveland's voucher program is constitutional.
