Assessing the impact of the Wisconsin Private School Voucher program on physical education, mental health resources, and nutrition in minority student populations

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Wisconsin
Key Outcomes:
The Parental Choice Program increases the racial/ethnic diversity of students enrolled in private schools in Wisconsin. Parents feel more satisfied with the nutrition and physical activity resources at private school compared to public schools. Minority parents report that they learned of the program through a neighbor or word of mouth; therefore outreach events are critical to continue to increase the diversity of private school student demographics.
