The Milwaukee Board of School Directors received an in-depth explanation of the district's budget proposal for next school year at a meeting Thursday night.
The same day the Milwaukee Teachers' Education Association released a video, saying educators are signing pledges to take action against the budget proposal. Rumors are now circulating that Milwaukee teachers are prepared to strike.
Everything is still under consideration in the budget. The board is expected to take action on the budget at the end of May.
Board Member Wendell J. Harris, Sr. said during Thursday's meeting that he will be going to the Wisconsin State Capitol on May 14 to demand that the legislature fund public education. He says hundreds of others from around the state will be joining him.
"Take it to their doorstep because we are all partners here," said Harris. "We’re in this together."
