A year ago, when the spring and summer months were marked with burning cars and boarded up main streets as people rioted, Gov. Tony Evers did too little, too late. This summer, there’s been a shooting on Water Street in Milwaukee and off State Street in Madison. This spring, there was a drive-by shooting in the Dells. No one should have to think twice about a beer at traditional Wisconsin tourism spots, but this is a new reality born out of pandering to leftists.
Our schools aren’t supposed to be laboratories to create new social justice warriors. They need to be preparing students to be part of the 21st Century workforce. Skills like reading, science, technology, engineering, and math should be the focus — not conscripting kids to be part of the Left’s culture war.
Our kids are struggling after a year's worth of mandated virtual-only instruction and educational instability. Instead of using new money to feed bureaucracies, what if we trusted parents to make the decisions that would get their students back on track?
