With Governor Walker’s Proposal, Wisconsin Once Again Leads the Nation in Education Reform

Democratic senators in Wisconsin have fled the state, unionized education employees have left the schools in protest, and thousands of students have been without class as the result of opposition to new measures that Walker is proposing to tackle the state’s nearly $4 billion deficit.
