The rally falls two days before a state budget hearing in Milwaukee, where public school supporters plan to demonstrate and testify against Gov. Walker’s proposed PreK-12 education cuts of $127 million, and against the expansion of taxpayer-funded voucher and privately run charter schools. Wednesday’s event is sponsored by several local, state and national teachers’ unions and by dozens of community and parent groups.
