Walker Prioritizes Politics Over Public Schools (Again)
State budget bill signing scheduled during State Supt. Evers’ State of Education Address
“This speaker volumes, and it’s symbolic of Governor Walker’s reign in Wisconsin. Nothing says more about how little Governor Walker cares about schools in our communities than the fact he decided to sign his state budget right in the middle of a report on the state of schools in Wisconsin.
After seven years of his administration’s cuts to education, the demonization of school teachers, and the belittling of intellectualism, this move is quintessential Walker: he puts politics before governance and self-preservation before the public good.
Our kids deserve better this and the calamitous mess Governor Walker has made of public education in Wisconsin over the past seven years.”
