When Gov. Evers took office, Wisconsin’s K-12 public schools had been drastically underfunded for years. He pushed for historic investments that improve quality and give Wisconsin’s kids every opportunity to get ahead. Now, for the first time in two decades, the state has fulfilled its funding commitment to public schools. Gov. Evers has also made sure that every student has the opportunity to achieve their dreams by signing the first increase in special education funding in a decade.
Under his leadership, Wisconsin also increased investments in higher education to give the University of Wisconsin System and Wisconsin’s technical colleges the resources they need. When Wisconsinites have the opportunity to learn the skills they need for today’s jobs, our economy grows, and Wisconsin moves forward. With the governor’s investments, UW System schools have been able to continue the freeze on tuition.
High quality schools are essential to our state’s economic success. In addition to making education a priority, Gov. Evers has done the right thing to help our small businesses and working families succeed, and Wisconsin’s economy is better off because of it.
Today, Wisconsin’s economy is booming and stronger than it was when Gov. Evers took office just three years ago:
Gov. Evers common sense leadership is bringing our state together and building the foundation we need for long-term success.
