Former Governor Scott Walker promotes ISA program in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Former Governor Scott Walker stopped in downtown Milwaukee on Tuesday at a place where they teach computer coding to young people.
It's called devCodeCamp and it's the first in the state to offer students an income share agreement program. That's essentially learn now and pay back when you get work.
"A lot of times students, would-be students don't have the money up front, but if the people providing the education say, we're counting on you getting a job, we think you're gonna get a job in this category, once you start making enough, we'll share a percentage of that income and that'll pay for the higher education. It's a great way to make things happen and I think it's the wave of the future," said Former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Under the income share agreement program, students would not have to make any payments until they make more than $40,000 a year.
