Wisconsin governor Scott Walker’s budget-cutting measures, besides rolling back collective bargaining and slashing workers’ pay, will cut state aid to education by 9 percent. Teachers said the cuts will swell class sizes, and that arts and music programs will be eliminated.

In this video, Wisconsin teachers and students speak on Walker’s cuts to public schools, the effect of social inequality on education, and the role of education in a democracy.
