MADISON –Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to Republican claims regarding funding for K-12 education.

“Wisconsin’s school children deserve better than Republican legislators who claim to be heroes while ignoring a budget deficit created by their own irresponsible fiscal and policy choices. In the last five years, Republicans have made record cuts to funding for our neighborhood schools, totaling 1.4 billion dollars including the current proposed budget.

For the third budget in a row, Republicans have proposed dumping more money into unaccountable private voucher schools. I refuse to let Republicans pat themselves on the back while they refuse to invest in our children’s futures by addressing the real challenges our schools face. ”
