lied about trying to change and destroying the "Wisconsin Idea," he's now going to attack it via state funding, after squeezing it dry:
“... some performance-driven components as a possibility going forward” … the governor’s office pointed to outcomes-based funding for technical colleges that ties a growing percentage of their budgets to how well they perform in categories such as graduates’ job placement and the number of degrees colleges award in high-demand fields.What he "hears from employers?" Love that anecdotal research. Guess we can forget about all those ambitious students hoping to start their own unique business, or even venturing out into unexplored new markets. What's important is getting our students ready for jobs exclusively in Wisconsin because Walker's world is just that small.
“I think that makes sense,” Walker said. “It’s certainly what we hear from employers who are looking to fill critical positions.”
If the Walker metric spanned a number of decades, and not just year by year placements and hot employer needs, then maybe it would be something to consider. But for now, there's no way we can trust one Walker, especially after what he's done to the state.
