GOP Governor Scott Walker Is Wisconsin’s Pro-Education Governor

As he promotes common-sense reforms to improve outcomes for Wisconsin students, Governor Scott Walker is showing why he is “the pro-education governor.”

Per the RGA:

As he promotes common-sense reforms to improve outcomes for Wisconsin students, Governor Scott Walker is showing why he is “the pro-education governor.” Governor Walker’s efforts in the Badger State have improved resources and performances of both students and teachers throughout the state while increasing funding flexibility for schools. While his opponents remain bought and paid for by special interests who put union bosses above students, Governor Walker remains committed to solving problems and improving schools across Wisconsin.

The Cap Times reports:

“In the face of 10 Democrats gunning for his job, Republican Gov. Scott Walker has decided to embrace an issue typically owned by the opposing party: education.

‘I’m being aggressive on this,’ Walker said in an interview. ‘We’re proclaiming proudly that I’m the pro-education governor and that I want to continue to be the pro-education governor.’

Walker on Tuesday will release a statewide television ad following the style of several others released since the launch of his re-election campaign: a testimony from someone else, followed by a message from the governor.

The latest ad features an elementary school special education teacher from Racine named Anita.

‘I can tell you one size does not fit all when it comes to our kids. And Gov. Walker gets it. He gave schools flexibility to put money where it matters most, in our classroom. And his latest budget adds $200 more per year for every student,’ the teacher says in the ad.

The flexibility the teacher references is Walker’s signature Act 10 legislation, which eliminated most public employees’ collective bargaining rights and required them to pay more into their pensions and health insurance premiums.

The law, which sparked massive protests at the state Capitol in 2011, is one most Democratic candidates for governor have said they would repeal if elected.

‘They say they’re pro-education because they’re going to repeal Act 10. That shows they’re pro-education special interest, pro-education bureaucracy,’ Walker said. ‘We’re pro-education in the sense that we want performance, improved resources. We want to reward excellent teachers. We want real results.’

Walked argued that undoing Act 10 would make it more difficult to send resources directly to classrooms, to reward exceptional teachers and to fire those who aren’t up to par.”
