Promises about Education on Evers-O-Meter
“As governor, Tony will: Increase investments in early childhood education and quality childcare, which includes helping Wisconsin families with skyrocketing childcare costs”
“As governor, Tony will: Increase school funding by $1.4 billion over two years in his first state budget.”
“As governor, Tony will: Increase investments in both our technical schools and University of Wisconsin System.”
In answer to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel questions, Evers campaign manager said Evers would want to repeal Act 10 or soften it.
Act 10 is the measure passed in 2011 by then-Gov. Scott Walker and fellow Republicans that curtailed collective bargaining for most public employees, among other matters.
While running for governor, Evers vowed to increase school funding so that the state paid for two-thirds of public school costs. The budget he proposed in his role as state superintendent included this as well.
