Public school advocates to request hearing extension to testify against budget

Milwaukee educators, parents and students will arrive at the state budget hearing immediately after school this Friday, March 20 and ask that the hearing be extended so they can express their concerns about proposed budget cuts to public schools and universities.

The group will gather outside Alverno's Pittman Theater at 4:30 p.m. and enter the hearing together. The hearing is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parents for Public Schools requested an extension of the hearing hours earlier this week, but did not receive a response from the Joint Finance Committee.
