MADISON – Over the course of the last six years, Wisconsin’s public schools have seen their funding slashed by $210 per pupil, a new Legislative Fiscal Bureau memo details. While these historic cuts have taken place, private voucher schools have seen an immense increase of $911 per pupil.

“These new figures detail exactly how damaging the Republican budget cuts have been on working families over the years,” said SSDC Executive Director Matt Ullsvik. “We should not be turning our backs on the education of our children. The misplaced budget priorities of Senators Harsdorf, Olsen, and Tiffany on the Joint Finance Committee continue to hurt Wisconsin families and damage the future of this state. The expansion of the private school voucher program continues to funnel money into the already deep pockets of their wealthy donors.”

“Wisconsinites know that every child deserves access to a quality education. Unfortunately, time after time, Republican legislators refuse to adequately fund our public schools. We deserve leaders in Madison who understand the importance of education for the future of our state. Wisconsin voters recognize that it’s time for a change,” Ullsvik concluded.

citizen-action-local-controlCitizen Action, our long time media partner, has been encouraged to start a member-owned, permanent, multi-issue local organization right here in Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin. See this Video for an idea of what this exciting new initiative is all about.


GREEN BAY - One year ago Citizen Action sought to change how they organize sustainably and locally, launching what became known as the "Organizing Cooperative". A member-owned organization that hires their own local organizer to fight for the main issues that matter to their members.

Since then, they have worked out of their Milwaukee Office on economic justice issues, won millions in new tax credits for working families, helped thousands enroll in healthcare, launched a large voter engagement campaign and supported diverse issues like child nutrition, poverty, education, payday lenders and more.

In March 2016, this model successfully was duplicated in Eau Claire as the 2nd Western Wisconsin Organizing Cooperative, with former state representative Jeff Smith becoming the organizer.

Now, Citizen Action has been encouraged to bring this model of member-owned, permanent, multi-issue local organization right here in Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin.
