Milwaukee Teacher's Union optimistic about revised budget announcement
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A change in the Milwaukee Public Schools budget proposal has brought a change in relations with the Teacher's Union.
"We have made a 2.5 adjustment at the Central Administration Building and there is zero cuts to schools."
"What this means for students is...it's immeasurable."
MTEA Vice President Amy Mizialko called last night's announcement that the revised budget would not include cuts to schools a "180-degree reversal" and while she says there's still a lot of work to be done, she is optimistic.
"The Milwaukee Teachers Education Association stands ready to work with this administration happily and proudly to bring families and students back to Milwaukee Public Schools," said Amy Mizialko, VP of the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association.
The changes to the budget proposal will be taken up at a special school board meeting next Tuesday.
