Madison – State Representative Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) has issued the following statement on DPI State Superintendent Jill Underly’s statement on the direction of public education in Wisconsin:
I will not support adding one more dollar to a broken education system that has vacated the mission of teaching children reading, writing and arithmetic and substituted it with racism and sexism. I call upon my republican colleagues to join me in insisting that our precious resources, provided by the taxpayers, are used in a responsible manner. The only increases that should be included in the next budget are increases in accountability, which are clearly lacking. Public education has no business glorifying and promoting propaganda about race, gender or sexuality. Encouraging transgender lifestyles in children is nothing short of child abuse.
