South Milwaukee and all of Wisconsin's schools are crumbling from over a decade of inequitable and inadequate state funding. As a result, an unprecedented number of school districts are being forced to slash budgets, cut teacher and staff positions, increase class sizes, and eliminate vital education programming like sports, music, arts and foreign language - just to survive.

 

Successful schools = strong property values = strong community.

 

Whether you own property in South Milwaukee, Rhinelander, Lake Arrowhead, Door County or anywhere in WI - our state's school funding crisis WILL be affecting your property value and your community in the next 5 years.

 

We can't change something we do not fully understand. Come and learn about this labrynthine system and a new program that can help.

 

Parents - Taxpayers - Teachers - Educators - Students - all are welcome

Hosted by the SM Music Parents and Rocket Band Boosters.
