Wisconsin Legislature and Governor Tony Evers Boost Investment in K-12 Education

This morning Governor Tony Evers bumped up funding by $65 million for K-12 education. This is on top of the $500 million increase passed by the Wisconsin Legislature. This increase in dollars, both by the Legislature and the Governor, will directly benefit families choosing to attend charter schools or participate in Wisconsin’s other choice programs

Statement from Justin Moralez, Wisconsin State Director for the American Federation for Children

“We want to thank the Republican controlled¬†Legislature for passing a budget that invests in K-12 education. And, on behalf of all families in Wisconsin with school age children, we extend a special thanks to Governor Evers as well for investing even more funds for K-12 education. This decision will help children attending district, charter, and private schools in our state. Every child deserves the opportunity to receive a high quality education and the¬†Governor’s decision today, in addition to the generous funding by the Legislature,¬†puts children and families first.”
