  1. Reblogged this on Stop the Takeover of MPS and commented:
    The right wing Walton Family Foundation gave over $4 million dollars to fund the destruction of public education in Milwaukee in 2014. Why? Because billionaires know that once public education is destroyed in Wisconsin, that they can fully cash in on students in this state.

  2. this is atrocious. to think that money is more important than the education of the children of Wisconsin and so many other school systems around the country (obviously). does the Walton family not care that “the kids” coming out of these schools will so far below the national average rather than making sure that they all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed? this is very, very disturbing. and please forgive me in advance for what I am about to type, but when it comes to education, I have come to expect nothing more from the right / tea party agenda. because we all know it’s just about the m-o-n-e-y for each of them / all of them …….. to heck with the rest of the people.
