June 30, 2011- Just days after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) signed the state's budget with massive cuts to education funding, Wisconsin's teachers are on the chopping block and making their way to court.
The Wisconsin Education Association Council announced on Wednesday that its members were filing suit over a law that requires all state agencies — including the Department of Public Instruction — to run any new regulations by Walker for approval.
"This suit was filed as a way to make sure education policies in our state are conducted in a way that is in line with our state constitution," Christine Brey, WEAC spokeswoman, told The Huffington Post. "All students should have the opportunities to have education policies driven by what’s best for schools and separate and apart from politics."
The suit alleges that the law is unconstitutional because it violates lines of authority established in the Wisconsin Constitution.
