Expanding Concrete Before Expanding Minds - It's The Walker Way

Gretchen Schuldt at Milwaukee Rising, succinctly states one of the things that has been bothering most Wisconsinites.  What's more, she does it with supporting facts:
A couple numbers to think about.

Wisconsin’ education spending has dropped $1,014 per pupil since 2008, trailing only Alabama in spending decline as measured by dollars, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. (Wisconsin’s 14.6% education spending decline ranked fifth in the nation).

Meanwhile, the state transportation fund siphoned $970 million away from the general fund over roughly the same time period, from the 2007-2009 through the 2003-2015 bienniums, according to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau. The general fund, of course, is the money the state uses to pay for things like education.

NOT just a coincidence. Expanding concrete before expanding minds. It’s the Wisconsin way.
In other words, Scott walker has sold our children's future to the road builders in exchange for campaign donations.

If he is reelected, what else will he do to our children?
