The governor’s state budget proposal has left Madison schools facing a budget gap of a minimum of $12 million for the 2015-16 school year.
The proposal means immediate, major cuts to our district and all public schools in the state. Rather than support our efforts, the state budget proposal clearly prioritizes private school vouchers, the authorization of independent charter schools and politics over real support for our public schools and our students.
We encourage you to write or call your legislators to tell them what you think about the state budget proposal. You can find more details about the proposal and contact information here.
