Our democracy depends on well educated citizens. The State of Wisconsin spends more on incarceration and corrections then it does on the entire University of Wisconsin system.
Budget Items: Corrections 7.4% U.W. 7.1%
We have allowed the drum beat of “no new taxes” to impoverish rural and poor school districts.
For every dollar spent on early literacy and high quality preschool programs, we can reduce the cost of later interventions.
Let’s put our money where it can do the most good, into creating a better tomorrow. Let’s create a budget that works for Wisconsin. See where I stand on education.
