目前，在密尔沃基和该地区的其他城市，存在着诸如开放入学政策、代金券计划和磁石学校等项目，以帮助改善全州范围内的教育。开放入学是家长选择在学区以外的学校招收孩子的选择。代金券计划为低收入家庭提供补助，让他们的孩子能够上私立学校。磁铁是那些专门从事某些课程的人，以便为上学的学生准备一份他们渴望从事的工作。所有这些都是有益于那些因为生活环境而不能得到良好教育的学生。在这些地区享有特权的儿童往往是优秀的学生，但由于缺乏机会、动力和资源，他们屈服于周围环境。2012八月的“工程结算所”进行的一项研究发现，密尔沃基地区的学生被授予私立学校的代金券，其成绩明显优于从未离开过公立学校的学生（工作组4）。阅读水平对7, 8年级学生的wkce 10表明学生们远比同龄学生在密尔沃基公立学校系统（什么工程结算1）。在德克萨斯的另一项研究表明，9年级和10名学生表现出较好的考试成绩和数学以及比同龄学生，永远离开了他们的社区高等学校出勤率（马洛尼12）。到目前为止（大部分情况下）只有好的东西来自程序。
Currently in Milwaukee and other cities in the area there exists programs such as open enrollment policies, voucher programs and magnet schools in an attempt to help improve education in a statewide manner. Open enrollment is the option for parents to enroll their children in schools outside of their district. Voucher programs give low-income families grants for their children to be able to attend private schools. Magnet are those that specialize in certain classes so as to prepare those who attend the school for a certain line of work that they aspire to be in. All these are beneficial to those students who would otherwise not be able to get a good education because of where they live. Under privileged children from these areas could often be stellar students, but due to lack of opportunity, motivation and resources, they succumb to their surroundings. A study conducted by the What Works Clearing house in August of 2012 found that Milwaukee area students who were given vouchers for private schools significantly outperformed their counterparts who never left the public school from where they lived (What Works Clearing House 4). The reading levels on the WKCE of students in grades 7, 8 and 10 showed that the students were far ahead of those students of the same age in the Milwaukee Public school system (What Works Clearing House 1). Another study in Texas showed that grade 9 and 10 students showed better test scores and math as well as higher school attendance than the students of the same age that never left their neighborhoods (Maloney 12). So far (for the most part) only good things have come from program.
