MADISON — State Superintendent Dr. Jill Underly today released the following statement regarding a court ruling on Act 10.

“The right to organize one’s co-workers into a union, and then collectively bargain, is a fundamental American right. It is fitting that we will celebrate the restoration of those rights for many workers this Independence Day. Respecting the rights of Wisconsin’s educators will also have a profound impact in addressing the crisis many public schools face in recruiting and retaining teachers.

“Act 10 was used to justify massive cuts in school funding that continue to cause challenges to this day. To protect the right of every child to a quality education, now is a perfect time to reinvest in local schools and reinvest in the future of Wisconsin.”
