WEAC Responds To Walkers School Proposals
Governor Scott Walker plans to increase state aid to public schools by one percent in the next two year budget that he’ll submit to lawmakers tomorrow. It would give schools an additional 276 million dollars, after a major cut of 834 million two years ago. Betsy Kippers, Vice President of Wisconsin Education Association Council, diasgrees.
Walker also proposed a series of aid increases including incentives for schools and teachers based on the districts’ new report cards. Kippers says WEAC also disagrees with that proposal.
