How to make your next coat and gown: Make it stylish in the Midwest
Posted by Andrew Breitbart on January 26, 2018 08:47:09 “The problem with the left, they’re all about diversity and they want to be able to go to the mall and buy whatever they want and it’s all about race and class,” said Republican Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa, who is running against former Gov.
“And if they can’t buy white people’s stuff, they’ll buy our stuff, and if they buy our products, we’ll buy theirs.”
“I would hope they’re smart enough to realize that they have no idea what their priorities are,” she added.
“I hope they realize that our priorities are our families, our kids, our veterans, our neighbors, our fellow citizens.”
Ernst is the latest GOP candidate to take on the state of Wisconsin.
Last week, she introduced a bill that would bar federal contractors from participating in Wisconsin’s school choice program and prohibit the state from funding any public-private partnership for any public school that doesn’t meet the standards set by the federal government.
She’s also been pushing to roll back the Voting Rights Act, a law that protects the right of Americans to vote and is widely known as the law that gave rise to the civil rights movement.
“Wisconsin’s history of voter suppression and discrimination in education, healthcare, the arts, and employment, and it continues to this day,” Ernst said in a statement.
“Our kids deserve a quality education that includes all of those benefits.
This is a very real issue that affects every family in Wisconsin.”
In response to a request for comment from The Associated Press, Granholm said she supports Ernst’s proposal, adding that the state has to make its own decisions about how to allocate resources.
“This is not something that should be an issue for us to be trying to legislate,” Granholm told reporters.
“This is something that the federal governments hands down.
We’ve got to be smart about how we allocate resources.”
Scott Walker, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, has been vocal about his opposition to the state’s school-choice law and has been criticized for the state having a poor record in testing and teacher hiring.
Last month, Walker signed a bill to eliminate the state budget deficit, but the state legislature approved the measure without an agreement on how to spend the money.
Walker said he would continue to push for school choice, saying the law should be passed in the “right” way.
“My goal is to be successful, and I think we’ve done a good job of getting this done,” Walker said.
“So, we’re going to continue to work on it, and we’ll continue to make sure that we have an inclusive education system.”
Wisconsin’s education department said that the number of charter schools has doubled since the law took effect, while the number enrolled in vouchers has tripled, and there have been more than 40,000 students enrolled in the program since January 2017.
The Department of Education is also planning to release more data on the number and types of charter and voucher schools in the state.
A separate lawsuit filed in January by a group of Wisconsin teachers, parents and other public school educators alleges that Walker and other Republican lawmakers and officials have repeatedly tried to shut down the public schools in Wisconsin by enacting and enforcing school-funding measures that hurt teachers and students.
The lawsuit was filed by the Wisconsin Teachers Association and Common Cause Wisconsin.
