Three Ways to Help Our Kids


Madison, WI – State Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) issued the following statement regarding Governor Evers’ call for a special session of the legislature to take up additional funding for education.


“Governor, I appreciate your passion for education—however, as usual, you’re trying to fix problems by throwing more money at them. That's just lazy leadership on your part. In order to improve our schools and help our kids, we should focus on three things: consolidate school districts to one per county, end the stranglehold that the union has on MPS by allowing the state to take over, and refocus on teaching kids how to think instead of what to think.”
