Invest in our public schools, students, and staff

Intro

The “Vote Yes 2 Invest” campaign is a coalition of community and business leaders, local families, educators and education advocates, working in support of the proposed Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) referenda. We believe every child deserves a high quality and equitable education, which is also fundamental to a vibrant community and strong local economy. Our collective future depends upon today’s investment in the educational experience of tomorrow’s leaders.

Pledge

While 2019-20 saw a slight increase in revenue from the state for the first time in four years, this state budget largely continues a ten year pattern of underfunding K-12 education. This very, very different time we are in has laid bare the inequities and challenges that still exist for our public schools and demonstrated an even more critical need for these referenda. It has also shown the dedication and resilience of our teachers and staff, and the commitment of the community. Pledge to Vote YES on November 3rd to invest in our public schools, students, and staff.
