Keep Sticking it to the Schools

Wisconsin Governor to Outline Ultimate Intentions in Budget

Well, that was a ominous title. Just what are your ultimate intentions, Scotty? One of them, according to the article, is major cuts to schools. Big surprise.

Another interesting tidbit I read from the article.

Wisconsin’s average teacher salary of about $48,000 ranks in the top half of states nationally, though it remains significantly behind the $60,000 average salaries in the top-paying states of California and Connecticut, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures. Wisconsin students also rank in the top half nationally on standardized tests, scoring a full percentage point better on the ACT college entrance exam.

The teachers are doing something right, despite the naysayers.

I can’t wait for the release of his “outline” tomorrow, which will probably be one of the creepiest PowerPoint Presentations ever.
