MADISON — State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor issued a statement on Governor Tony Evers' proposed 2019-21 budget.
"As a lifelong educator, I applaud Governor Evers’ budget proposal. It makes historic investments in public education and advances student equity. The governor’s unprecedented support for special education, student mental health, and English learners, coupled with his commitment to reforming our broken school finance system and restoring two-thirds school funding, will provide our schools and educators the resources to help meet the needs of every child.
"I further commend Governor Evers for investing in children and youth across all areas of his budget. What happens outside of school affects students in school. We need to work together, and beyond the school doors, to ensure every student graduates college and career ready.
"I look forward to working with the governor and the Legislature to pass a budget that provides the resources every student needs."
