depaul and i'm like "mom, i'm going there." she was like, yeah, okay cool." we first caught up with brionne candie of milwaukee, as she packed for school-- pursuing a degree in nursing. she was surprised when she was accepted at depaul university in chicago-- her first choice. but her mother, antoi johns was "not". "i knew it wasn't, it wasn't an issue...'cause her grades through high school had been awesome. and she's a really hard worker." but then reality set in. laughs " depaul is a private school with a hefty price tag. "i was just working and you know, saving my money. and then of course my mom was saving her money. as well as my dad and my grandma, she always helps when she can." "by this being kinda my first experience i wasn't really expereinced in searching out scholarships and different things. so we got a few. but we didn't get as many as we probably should have."on top of that, johns had recently opened a new business called transcending

generated-- not to mention furnishing the place... there wasn't much of a surplus. ...what the school wanted right away and what they had didn't match. and that's when the proverbial light bulb went off:: why not try crowdfunding...specifically gofundme. "my mom. that was my mom's idea." "you know i talked to bri and i said why don't you go ahead...because i wasn't going to do it because i wanted her to also have some responsibility." candie composed her pitch on the site and lau page.donations from friends, family and a few strangers started coming in. we raised about $750 and that helped a lot. it helped a lot...just that little bit because i was facing such a big debt at first."it's still up... candi isn't the only student to turn to crowdfunding. "just search the education category and you'll find many others. pitches range from overcoming difficult times to the chance to help others .... all designed to encourage readers to

kinds kick it out and we'll share it on facebook." some other students we talked to said they never thought of crowdfunding for education. "i think it could be very effective for people who have enough sources." "i don't think it would be a good thing if everybody, you know if the majority of students did that, but i see maybe a handful out of the bunch maybe who have special circumstances." "i have the means for paying for college right now and i've been able to support the need in asking for money."one thing to keep in mind when considering crowdfunding is getting the money from the sites is not free. gofundme deducts about 8% from each donation you receive. the deduction is between 8 and 10- percent with indiegogo. and, youcaring deducts a processing fee of about 3%. but what's left, is still money students wouldn't have otherwise. and lastly, the support is immeasurable.

there are some people who have questioned the accountability of voucher schools. one reason vouchers are different from public schools is because teachers don't need teaching licenses. and one local principal, we've found, doesn't need a clean background check, either. fox6 investigator

reported extensively on voucher school leaders in wisconsin. "when these schools you have never heard of show up one day and people get a glossy flyer saying enroll your student today for a great education...you know, everything that glitters isnt gold.' many voucher school leaders dont even have backgrounds in education - a sticking point for choice school opponents like congressman pocan. 'we would never tolerate that in the public school system.' hickmans used to work as an insurance agent. he got caught pocketing premiums from elderly clients and was convicted of embezzlement in 2005. now he leads this voucher school. his resume shows hes in charge of developing and monitoring the schools budget of more than 2-million dollars a year - and all of it is public money.

"i can tell you hickman academy does current background checks, so my background is good. i am good to work in the school. thats the most i can say." montgomery has filed for bankruptcs the state money for unemployment benefits he shouldnt have received. and court records show he owes 80-thousand dollars in child support - all of which could bar him from obtaining a teaching license and working in a public school.but a voucher school? no problem. he even tried to open his own school. he raised about 4-thousand dollars on go fund me, but the school never got off the ground.
