Do you want more money for schools or lower property taxes?
Well, the state budget I recently signed does both. Our 2017-2019 budget includes more actual dollars for K-12 education than ever before ($11.5 billion), andit will help lower property taxes on a median valued home. Plus, we will freeze tuition again at all University of Wisconsin System campuses for the next two years.
From rural schools to the Milwaukee Public Schools, our budget does much to improve education in Wisconsin. On top of the overall increase, we invest heavily in improving mental health for students, in helping special needs children, and in access to technology and high-speed internet connections in the classroom and on the bus. There is an increase in funding for Fab Labs, youth apprenticeships and early college credit programs. Our goal is student success for all our children.
