Wisconsin students and families depend on our schools to be safe so learning can stay on track. Educators and parents are going above and beyond and we believe our elected officials should do the same.

We are calling on you and all Assembly Republicans to provide meaningful leadership and solutions for schools. Your current proposal is out-of-touch with the current reality and would set schools in communities across Wisconsin back.

The top priority of elected officials should be keeping children safe and that means providing necessary support for schools to meet extraordinary challenges. We urge you to look support solutions to curb the spread of this deadly virus instead of creating policies to make things worse.
