Democratic candidate for Governor Kathleen Falk says she has some differences with fellow contender Tom Barrett on the issue of public education.
Falk continues to campaign in Milwaukee, ahead of next week's Democratic recall primary. The former Dane County executive is trying to win over Milwaukee Democrats not sold on Mayor Barrett. Falk spoke Tuesday (5/1) outside a public school that was shut down last year, amid state aid cuts and Gov. Walker's expansion of taxpayer funded school vouchers. Falk says expanding vouchers was a bad idea.
Milwaukee public school teacher Kim Schroeder says he's also concerned about the Milwaukee charter schools chartered to the city.
Mayor Barrett has tried several times to get state lawmakers to fix what he calls a funding flaw that he says hurts Milwaukee taxpayers and helps the private voucher schools.
