Milwaukee-area groups requesting more funding for public schools

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee-area educators and officials are demanding more funding for public schools.

Governor Evers wanted to invest nearly $1.5 billion in K-12 education.

The budget passed by the Joint Finance Committee invests a third of that.

State Senator Chris Larson says Republicans are short-changing the education system at a time when there's budget surplus.

"Why do this at a time when we have funds, when we need to invest in our students, when we need to invest in our kids. This is the best time to do it," said State Sen. Chris Larson (D).

Educators say the GOP plan invests significantly less money in special education.

State leaders and educators plan to protest the budget by marching from Eagle to Madison later this month.
