The day after delivering his pro-public education State Budget Address at the Capitol in Madison, Governor Evers hit the road and visited schools throughout the state, in part reading to students to help celebrate NEA’s Read Across America.
In the pictures below, he is visiting the classes of Racine Education Association members Lori Wernicke and Rosemary Mason at Schulte Elementary School in Racine, WEAC Region 3 member Diane Barnett’s class at Lincoln Elementary School in Appleton, and the jump rope team after-school program run by WEAC Region 4 member Mark Shuda at La Crosse’s Southern Bluffs Elementary School. Students there focus on healthy lifestyles and choices. The governor’s proposed budget – for the first time ever – creates funding especially for after school programs.
In this final picture below, Governor Evers poses with WEAC Region 4 members (left to right) Michelle Powell, Jill Schams and John Havlicek.
