As students return for the start of second semester college classes in Wisconsin, they are already experiencing the effects of Gov. Walker’s damaging cuts to our universities and technical colleges. College students and their families are right to question why it makes sense to slash education budgets while spending lavishly on special interests and wealthy corporations.
Governor Walker’s talk about job training rings very hollow after he made more than $70 million in cuts to job training programs through our technical colleges.
