WEAC not planning budget protest


MADISON (WKOW) -- The president of the state's largest teachers union says they don't plan to protest when the legislature takes up Governor Walker's budget next week.

With the school year winding down and proposed cuts to education, teachers face an uncertain future heading into the summer, but they'll be watching the Capitol.

"Would I rule out that there would be numbers at the Capitol if different things get entered into the budget or the budget as it is gets passed? Absolutely not.," says WEAC President Mary Bell.  "People are very, very disturbed by what they see happening here.

Bell says for now, many teachers plan on teaching summer school, working other summer jobs or taking graduate classes.
