Wisconsin Education Alert: Pressure Is Mounting Around the State to Restore and Increase Public Education Money to the Budget

Filed under: Wisc Budget Bill — millerlf @ 1:26 pm

At the Joint Finance hearing in Milwaukee on March 20 the resounding demand was clear; SUPPORT PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS, SUPPORT PUBLIC SCHOOLS, SUPPORT PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATORS.

The Journal reported, “In a meeting with reporters before the hearing, Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) said restoring some funding to K-12 education was a “big priority” for lawmakers.”

The use of the phrase “restoring some funding” means partial funding. This will be an attempt to return enough money to the budget to appease some districts and divide the state-wide effort defending public education.

We cannot let this happen. The budget must not only restore the $150 categorical fund but must go beyond, to significantly increase funding, as all previous administrations have done.
