2-24-21 area education leaders pleased with governor evers’ budget

Fond du Lac area school leaders say they are pleased with governor Tony Evers’ proposed budget when it comes to education.  The governor’s proposal increases state funding for K-12 schools by more than $1.6 billion over the next two years.  North Fond du Lac superintendent Aaron Sadoff the governor’s proposal to increase funding for special education would have a positive impact on the district.  Sadoff says while he realizes the final budget won’t be what the governor is proposing,  he believes the state’s revenue outlook will be better than projected.  Interim Fond du Lac school superintendent Sharon Simon says it would definitely be a boost in the arm for K-12 education.  Simon says she agrees with the governor that education is crucial to the state’s successful economic and social recovery from the pandemic.
