Wisconsin Teachers Failing Wisconsin...In More Ways Than One

Here's a little factoid to remember when watching those public union schoolteachers throwing tantrums up in Wisconsin.

Two-thirds of the eighth graders in Wisconsin public schools cannot read proficiently despite the fact that Wisconsin spends more per pupil in its public schools than any other state in the Midwest.

And these stats do no come from some conservative think tank. They come instead from one of the most liberal, free-spending and teacher-friendly sources of all -- the U.S. Department of Education!
