Step Up 4 Wisconsin Public Schools
The Promise of Public Education - Working for Wisconsin

For generations, Wisconsinites have believed that education holds the key to our state’s future.  From establishing the nation’s first kindergarten, to extending the university system to all the borders of the state, to forming first-class technical colleges that help businesses succeed, Wisconsin has tied its economic growth and future to education. A strong public education system and a vibrant economy go hand-in-hand, yet out-of-state special interests are intent on weakening our neighborhood public schools by pushing taxpayer-funded vouchers and independent charters.
