Upper Darby education activists take note: This
is how they got more money to school programs in Wisconsin.
Places like the New Berlin school district, with its 4,700 students, have already reduced health-care costs by $2.3 million, retirement costs by $1.25 million, and other liabilities by $15 million. The district hired new staff, reduced class sizes, and added programs. The Shorewood district saved $537,000 simply by bidding out its health contract (previously run by a union outfit), and also reduced insurance premiums for its teachers.
Somehow, I don't expect the PSEA to support the sort of reforms the helped the Badger state get more money into the classroom.
