State could lose $8.5M in education funds

Growing up in a family of educators has taught me the value of education. I am proud of the education I received from the Green Bay public schools, from Doty Elementary through Southwest High School. In order to continue providing Wisconsin children a great education, we need to invest in education and not impose harsh cuts that will dramatically affect the quality of education students receive.

The federal government is slated to start cutting spending on March 1 as a part of sequestration. This would include a nationwide cut of $1.2 billion from K-12 education. That would result in Wisconsin losing $8.5 million in education funding. Those cuts would be equivalent to dropping educational services to 10,480 Wisconsin children. We need to be investing in Wisconsin's children and their future, not cutting it away. Reducing the deficit only through spending cuts is not balanced or fair. We can't simply cut our way to prosperity.
