Educators Asked to Leave Walker Press Conference on Education?! - Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Blog


Stan Johnson, Sid Hatch and Mike Langyel were surprised when they were asked by Governor Walker staff representatives and the Milwaukee police department’s professional performance division to leave a press conference this afternoon on education reform

"I wanted to hear first hand what the Governor had in plan for education reform since these changes will directly affect the Milwaukee teachers,” said Stan Johnson, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association. “We heard there was going to be an announcement about education; we wanted to be able to understand the details of that plan so we went to the conference, only to be asked to leave by one of Walker’s staff and the Milwaukee police."
