EXCERPTS:

“The biggest lie that any politician in America is telling in the 2018 election season is Scott Walker’s claim that he is a pro-education governor.”

“Walker, a career politician who has a long record of bashing public education, is trying to remake his image as he seeks a third term as governor. Part of that remake involves a shameless attempt to suggest that he has an interest in students and teachers, urban and rural schools and the UW System.

But no one should fall for this fantasy. Walker is running for re-election because his presidential ambitions were thwarted at the start of the 2016…”

“Donald Trump ripped into Walker during the campaign, saying that under his rival’s attempt at leadership: ‘Wisconsin’s doing terribly. It’s in turmoil. The roads are a disaster because they don’t have any money to rebuild them. They’re borrowing money like crazy. They projected a $1 billion surplus, and it turns out to be a deficit of $2.2 billion. The schools are a disaster.’”

“Scott Walker has been, and remains, the most anti-education governor this state has ever seen.”
