This weekend, Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) signed into law a budget that scrapped $800 million in education funding following an earlier law that reduced collective bargaining rights to almost nothing, reports the Huffington Post. As Walker put pen to paper, teacher Margaret Allen felt mixed emotions.
“Having that legislation official, now signed into law, it’s a done deal,” she said. “It’s been heartbreaking but it also strengthens my resolve to continue being politically active.”
