Everyone can see damage Walker is inflicting to Wisconsin schools

9/26/2011 12:27:19 PM

With the announcement that Governor Walker will be appearing on NBC’s Education Nation summit, the following statement can be attributed to Mary Bell, a Wisconsin Rapids teacher and president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council:

“It’s ironic that the governor is taking the national stage to hype himself as a collaborator, when anyone who lives and works in Wisconsin can see the damage he’s inflicting onto our students and schools – and, in turn, our state’s economic future. The bottom line is the governor’s extreme cuts to public schools hurt students, and his punitive laws take the voice of teachers out of their schools. While the governor schedules appearances on talk shows to spin the facts, we’re hard at work in our classrooms trying to help students succeed.”
