Thank you to the co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee for keeping the historic K-12 funding levels in place as they begin budget deliberations. As I have traveled to every county for listening sessions and visited schools districts throughout Wisconsin, one message is clear – we need to take our Reform Dividend and invest it in K-12 education. That is what my budget does, and by keeping my proposal today, the Legislature recognizes the need to make public education a top priority.
