You can read the full one page resolution HERE, but the closing is worth posting:
RESOLVED, That the Milwaukee Board of School Directors join with other school districts in the State of Wisconsin to strongly encourage the Governor and the State Legislature to revise the Governor’s proposed budget to restore school funding in 2015-17 to levels adequate to fund public education in Wisconsin and to reject any decrease in anticipated revenue in the first year of the biennium, while also providing for inflationary revenue increases in both years; and be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That this Resolution be spread upon the permanent Record of this Board, and that the Board direct the Board Clerk to prepare and to present engrossed copies of this Resolution, suitably signed and sealed, to the Governor and to the State Legislature.Thank heavens we are finally starting to stand up for ourselves as a school district. For too long we've tip-toed around trying to not upset the apple-cart because we worried having our knees chopped off. Well, I'm here to say it again, they're going to do in Madison whatever they want. If we do nothing, we have no chance.
Thank you MPS Board of Directors!
