Gov. Tony Evers has declared a Special Session on education and called for a restoration of special education, mental health and sparsity aid to help students in every district fill the funding gaps by keeping the state’s promise to provide 2/3 funding – a promise the 2019-2021 budget didn’t keep.
Let your lawmakers know that you’d like to see $250 million of the surplus go toward meeting our kids’ most pressing needs NOW. We can’t afford to wait two more years to provide the supports they need today!
