Higher ed seems to get little candidate attention as recall votes near
If it’s your observation that the UW System and higher education aren’t getting much play in the gubernatorial recall election, you’re not alone. K-12 and Medicaid seem to be higher priorities, some observers say. “The UW System has been hit hard by the last two governors (Doyle and Walker, with a pair of $250 million base-budget cuts), and I don’t expect a lot to change after June 5,” says political scientist Joe Heim. The Capital Times quotes Heim and quite a few others.
