Wisconsin Public Education Action

Every child deserves the freedom to learn and thrive in Wisconsin’s public schools.


Wisconsin’s Public Education Defense Fund protects Wisconsin public school students against attacks on the freedom to teach and learn in safe, welcoming, joyful, inclusive environments that allow all students to thrive. Building a strong Public Education Defense Fund is key to fighting back against increasingly dangerous political agendas that threaten our students’ right to shine and succeed in excellent public schools.

When the state isn’t meeting its obligation to our kids, or our state Constitution, we have an obligation to hold it accountable – at the Capitol, in our classrooms, and beyond. When public dollars support private schools that can discriminate against students and put them at risk, it’s time to demand better. When politics and partisanship get in the way of doing right by local kids, it’s time to take action.
