I bitch about polotics but I have to question this one:
Walker’s new budget proposal would slash $300 million from the University of Wisconsin system over the next two years. That’s a 13 percent reduction in state funding.
$300 mil sounds like a lot of money but over 2 years is it really that bad? I know we are dumping a lot of cash into the UW System and I would like to know where the dollars go. I have the feeling people look at the UW System as the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The system is all over the state, Milwaukee, Parkside, La Crosse, Green Bay, Whitewater, Oshkosh, Stevens Point, Eau Claire, just to name a few of the larger ones. The UW educates approximately 180,000 students on 26 campuses, and serves more than one million citizens through statewide extension programs
It seems like it's harder and harder for kids to get INTO college yet the colleges are yelling "Gimme dat money"; for what. I believe Asswipe...sorry, Walker screwed over Racine's school system.
I feel every kid who graduated from high school, has the right to go to college. You don't need to pass SAT or what ever tests they have out there to get in. You have one semester to make the grade or your out, come back next year.
So am I wrong thinking this reduction may be good? Is Walker doing this just to 'toot his horn' while he makes a run at the Presidency?
I guess if I know the answers to many of these questions I would run for President, well Governor.
