The WISCONSIN Budget puts our students first – making historic investments in our students and classrooms. This budget provides the largest investment in K-12 education in actual dollars.


Republicans aren't the only ones excited about this plan. Governor Evers himself has even gone on record calling such an education-spending plan, “pro kid.” (find out what others are saying about our education plan below)

In addition to providing an increase of more than $600 per student in the budget, Republicans are also increasing support for special education by 22% and doubling the current funding for student mental health programs. The budget also eliminates the governor’s plan to cap school vouchers.

To help keep college affordable, we’re also freezing tuition on all UW campuses for another two years and increasing support for our technical colleges!
