Don't let corporations run education

When Scott Walker campaigned for governor it was all about jobs. However, after he was elected he used the budget bill to stab the working class in the back.

Now he is using the budget bill to destroy the public school system by siphoning money from the public schools and transferring funds to corporations that want to profit from voucher schools. It's not about improving education; it's about putting in place more bills secretly drafted by ALEC, which profit corporations.

Education of our children is at its best when administered under local control with an elected board of education that works in harmony with parents and teachers in closely knit neighborhoods. Voucher schools do not have oversight as public schools do. And would a parent like to deal with a corporation if their child was having problems in school?

If we want to improve education we don't have to throw the baby out with the bath water. We already have the structure in place and just need to keep improving that system. I don't think it is in the best interests of our children to have our education system run by corporations that are more concerned with profits than the common good of our state.
