Madison, WI (Tuesday, May 28, 2024) – Today, more than 700 students, staff and parents from One City Schools will visit Wisconsin’s State Capitol to tour the capitol and thank Governor Tony Evers, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, SenateMajority Leader Devin LeMahieu, and other members of the State Legislature who voted in support of increasing per pupil funding to public charter schools in2023. All attendees will arrive by chartered buses and cars, and will convene at 10:00am on the steps leading up to State Street entrance to the StateCapitol.

One City Schools founder and CEO, Kaleem Caire, explained the reason for today’s visit, stating “We feel it is important for our state leadership to hear how grateful we are for their attentiveness to the education of children in our schools and across our state during the last biennial budget process. Governor Evers and leaders of our state legislature were able to work together to provide an unprecedented $1.3 billion in increased per pupil spending for the education of children in Wisconsin last year. We hope our presence shows them how much we appreciate their support, and that it encourages them to place early childhood and K-12 education at the top of their priority list with conversations about the next 2025-27 biennial budget process commences on January 1, 2025. We have a lot to do in schools, in our homes, and in communities across our state to ensure our children are well-prepared for life and leadership in a fast-moving and changing future. Support from our state, county and local leaders, and from families and schools, will be paramount to our children’s success.”

One City Scholars, staff, and families will be present at the Capitol until buses depart for the school at 11:30am today.
