State Budget + Schools = Contact Your Legislators

We know how desperately our schools need more funding. By a wide margin, the people of Wisconsin agree with us. A recent Marquette University Law School poll showed that 80% of Wisconsinites believe we should invest more money into public education. In addition, voters across the state are opting to increase funding for their schools through referenda.

Now is a key time for school funding because the debate over the 2017-19 state budget -- which runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019 – is in full swing at the Capitol. The 16-member Joint Finance Committee recently concluded its public hearings at locations throughout the state.
