Scott Walker Is ‘Proud’ Of Gutting University Of Wisconsin Budgets - Aaron Rupar, Think Progress

The University of Wisconsin system is still reeling from the blows Gov. Scott Walker (R) has dealt in recent years. The last budget the governor signed into law cut $250 million from the state’s public universities. That number, which was slightly less than the $300 million in cuts Walker sought, matches the contribution taxpayers are making for a new Milwaukee Bucks arena. Combined with Walker’s war on tenure protections for professors, the cuts prompted a number of faculty members leaving for greener pastures at the end of the last academic year. But in an op-ed published Thursday on right-wing radio host Charlie Sykes’ website, Walker actually bragged about how well he’s handled University of Wisconsin colleges during his tenure. https://thinkprogress.org/scott-walker-is-proud-of-gutting-university-of-wisconsin-budgets-2ca67fba5ea7
