Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers isn’t ruling out a potential property tax cut Republicans are considering for next year — but he stressed the state needs to ensure “we have the resources necessary” to pursue the idea.
Still, Evers in Monday end-of-year interview with the Cap Times said it is “way too early” to commit spending potential surplus funding when Wisconsin has “issues around clean drinking water” and “our schools not having enough resources.”
Will anyone ever define what “enough” looks like for our public schools? We are spending more on schools than ever and far more on public schools than on private schools. Meanwhile, educational outcomes are steadily declining. What is “enough?” $20k per kid? $30k? How much would we have to spend before liberals admit that more money is not the solution?
