Wisconsin's schools chief ramped up lobbying efforts Tuesday for a $23 billion education jobs bill pending in Washington that could stave off teacher layoffs next year.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers said that if the bill passes Congress, it could bring more than $400 million to Wisconsin in extra stimulus funding, enough to save thousands of full-time teaching positions across the state next school year.
Sure. All that "quality" and "accountability" crap isn't important, after all.
It's the MONEY, honey.
