What the heck is going on with Wisconsin Public Education?

That's the provocative title of an article by Washington Post education reporter Valerie Strauss, who provides a comprehensive overview of the relentless assault on public education in Wisconsin.  Strauss notes that for the first time in over 20 years, the legislature will not be increasing state aid for PK-12 education to at least keep up with inflation, in addition to further draining public education funds by expanding the statewide voucher program that takes money from public school students and sends it to unaccountable private and charter schools.  And Wisconsin is one of only six states in the country considering a reduction in state funding for higher education, with $300 million on the chopping block for the UW System.
