Article X of the Wisconsin Constitution provides for free public district schools for all children. It also provides for the education of all students regardless of economic class, learning styles, behavioral issues, and abilities. This Article requires taxes for school support, provided for a school fund and distribution of the fund on the basis of school population.
For the past several years our public school system’s programs and services have been cut to the bone. This budget freezes revenue caps and cuts state aids to local schools. This will be continuing the legacy of less. This proposed budget slams the door on our students and is an insult to Wisconsin’s education legacy. This must be stopped and we must insist that our constitutional guarantees to our children be honored.
