Evers statement on proposed federal education cuts
MADISON — State Superintendent Tony Evers issued a statement today on President Donald Trump’s proposed budget, which cuts about $9.2 billion from the federal Education Department and cuts or eliminates numerous programs that support the education of children in Wisconsin and across the nation.
“I have grave concerns about the impact the president’s proposed budget will have on Wisconsin kids. Pushing a policy agenda to states by funding political objectives has not proven to be effective, regardless of what party is currently controlling government. Quite frankly, it’s an overreach and flies in the face of what the Every Student Succeeds Act established through bipartisan work: returning control of schools back to the states.
“It is disheartening to see the trade-off being made between funding that benefits kids and the construction of a wall. Eliminating programs that help train and improve our educators, provide after-school opportunities for kids, and assist first-generation college students will have a direct, negative impact on the lives of Wisconsin families.
“We have to get beyond the battle between school governance systems if we want to provide equity for our students. Wisconsin has the longest-running voucher program in the nation and still faces opportunity and achievement gaps between students of color and their peers. Cutting funding for students in one school system in favor of the other is a sure-fire way to bring failure to both.”

Baltimore - the colorful, diverse city that is Maryland's largest city and economic hub, is known for its beautiful harbor; quirky, distinct neighborhoods; unique museums and the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital to the east and the University of Maryland Medical Center to the west. With the rich history the city boasts however, it's amazing that Baltimore hasn't been deemed one of America's greatest historical destinations.
