Financial help for schools dominant theme at first hearing; regents voting on 2 new chancellors; silo mishap claims Catawba man, more state news
GREENDALE -- Public school officials say they've squeezed out as much savings as they possibly can - and they need more state aid.
Gov. Scott Walker's decision to freeze public school aid, while spending more on private school vouchers, was a major topic Thursday at the Joint Finance Committee's first public hearing on the new state budget.
Hundreds of people attended the all-day hearing, held in the Milwaukee suburb of Greendale.
