Hmm...wonder why this isn't being shown in the LOCAL media coverage?
Wisconsin Budget Saves Schools
Let's just fire all the teachers, abolish the entire Dept of Education (wow, what a savings that will be!) and return just 50% of the money saved to parents who have school-aged children in the form of a tax rebate. They can homeschool their own kids or send them to private school. The other 50% should go towards the debt, sigh.
Our government has already shipped our higher-paying jobs overseas. There is no point educating kids with Trigonometry and Civics when there is no need for such skills. Will we get a generation of even more illiterate goons? Yup. But those kids who are already dipping their toes into that lake in school can just do it from their parents' house or on the street.
We might start building more jails. Just saying.
