Viewpoint Luncheon

The State Budget’s Focus on Education:
Meeting the Need or Over the Top?

One of the most striking features of Governor Tony Evers’ proposed budget is the amount of new spending on education – including hundreds of millions more for K-12 school aids, special education, and the UW System and relaxed revenue limits for school and technical college districts. Is the new spending too much for taxpayers to bear, or a necessary response to years of under-investment? Are the proposed increases allocated properly across the state’s education continuum? Does the budget appropriately emphasize the targeting of new funds to low-income communities?

Join the Wisconsin Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the state of education in Wisconsin as framed by the Governor’s budget proposal.

We’ll begin by providing the Forum’s take on the education components of the proposed budget. Then, we’ll hear from a panel of education experts and leaders:

Jeff Buhrandt, Senior Director of State Relations, UW System
Scott Manley, Senior VP of Govt Relations, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce
Dan Rossmiller, Director of Govt Relations, Wisconsin Association of School Boards
Sharon Schmeling, Executive Director, Wisconsin Council of Religious & Independent Schools

Moderated by Rob Henken, Wisconsin Policy Forum
