To the editor:

While Governor Walker talks about his reasons why Wisconsin should allow additional funding to private and charter schools, the rest of us sit here and scratch our heads to try and understand why he is doing this. ...

Only now is Walker talking about pumping more money into education.

Please try to understand that Walker is filling you full of bologna when he talks about how he thinks that the public schools are in dire straits for education. Because according to national reports, it looks like most Wisconsin public schools are doing their jobs and doing them well.

Now, for some reason, Walker wants to look like the “Good Guy” here and make it look like he is helping education. This is after he originally pillaged its funding and destroyed professionalism in schools. ...

Ask yourself this, why didn’t Luther Olson stand up to Walker the first time around when he knew that what Walker was doing was wrong?

Now he asks for the funding that his party originally took away.
