I think Franklin Public Schools can stop crying the blues about government funding

Today, WI Gov. Tony Evers announced he’s directing $90 million more in federal pandemic funding for Wisconsin schools. He claims the funds will help school officials recruit and retain teachers.

Clearly the guy is up for re-election in a very tight race.

His opponent Tim Michels sees through it.

“The fact that self-proclaimed ‘education governor’ Evers needs to make news on education with 70 days until Election Day shows that his anti-parents, pro-special interest education agenda isn’t resonating with Wisconsin voters,” Michels said. “Evers wants his big checks to make people forget his big failures, but his disastrous record speaks for itself.”

MPS is raking in more than $6.5 million in this obvious pre-election ploy. Special, isn’t it.

Franklin will get $396,411. The district gets sizable funding from the school property tax, the state, and the Feds, but to them, it’s never enough.
