Students First

Under Governor Walker’s leadership, we’re putting students first and making record investments in our classrooms. By empowering families and school districts, Gov. Walker has made historic actual-dollar investments into K-12 education including $200 more per student this school year and another $204 more per student in the fall.

In his latest budget, Wisconsin increased Sparsity Aid for rural school districts to ensure student success regardless of zip code. In addition, Gov. Walker froze UW System tuition 6 years running to make college more affordable for students and families.

With Gov. Walker leading the way, Wisconsin is on a comeback. As a result of our success we’ve been able to make historic investments in priorities that will keep our state moving forward and help Wisconsin win the 21st century.
