Walker speaks without thinking again, bought into and pushed "2.8 students per faculty" lunacy.

Going for broke in his war against education and the University of Wisconsin, Scott Walker made up something so ridiculous for his low information voters, that no fact check or pants on fire rating will ever be able to take back. Common sense would have told most people that a statistic like that isn't possible, but what the hell. Bravo! JS


Our rating: Charging that the ratio of students to faculty at UW-Milwaukee is shrinking, Walker said the school has "2.8 students per faculty" member, "tied for second-lowest in its history since 1994."

But Walker cited the wrong statistic. In fact, UW-Milwaukee has 29 students for every professor, associate professor and assistant professor -- and that ratio has been growing, not shrinking, since 1994.

For a statement that is false and ridiculous, our rating is Pants on Fire.
