In a proposed change that cuts the Wisconsin university system to the bone, Walker also proposes removing every vestige of idealism from the state.
Gov. Scott Walker is once again at odds with his state’s public sector, this time for proposing massive budget cuts to the University of Wisconsin and attempting to remove references to "state needs" and improving "the human condition" from the school’s mission statement.
Walker’s proposed cuts would slash $150 million in funding from the UW system, roughly 13 percent of the school’s budget. Additionally, it would completely remove the "The Wisconsin Idea" from the UW mission statement, which prioritized extending educational resources to "every family in the state."
This is the guy who wants to run for president of the United States. He clearly hates the idea that government might serve all of the people; don’t you know the sole purpose of the state is to funnel money from the poors into the pockets of the Koch brothers? It doesn’t accomplish that goal to give people opportunity and hope.
