Act 10 Killing Rural Schools, Losing Teachers.

It was just a matter of time, and thankfully, just before Scott Walker attempts to get reelected based on the damage he’s caused education due to Act 10.

He recently talked about how after the passage of Act 10 and cuts to education, parents looked at their schools and didn’t notice any difference. Some even saw improvements.

Not so fast. From WPR: 

Education advocates told state legislators today that the law known as Act 10 is accelerating the movement of teachers out of rural schools into larger districts where they can get paid more. Jerry Fiene of the Rural Schools Alliance said that disparity was happening right now.

“Since Act 10, the disparities in compensation between rural and non-rural districts are increasing as signing bonuses are being offered to candidates in certification areas that are in high demand by larger districts with more resources,” said Fiene.
