Tony Evers, who is seeking a second term as state superintendent of public instruction, said in a March 5 pre-election interview that Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget would force new spending cuts by public schools statewide, since it would not increase per-pupil spending limits. Evers wamts per-pupil spending to be increased by $225 next year, and $235 the following year, which would cost a total of $515 million over the two years. Evers said a better use of the $343 million that Walker wants spent on an income tax cut would be more state aid for public schools. Evers also said he has 36 years of experience as an educator, while his April 2 election opponent - Republican Rep. Don Pridemore - has no experience working in Wisconsin schools.
