In the 2017-2018 school year, Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) expects to receive approximately $5 million in federal Medicaid reimbursements. This money is used to provide vital services including physical therapy, speech therapy, school nurses, transportation, and more. The Republican's healthcare repeal bill, if passed would make drastic cuts to Medicaid, while still requiring schools to provide the same services they do now. This would have a devastating effect on the MPS budget, and it's our kids who will suffer because of it.
Join Citizen Action of Wisconsin, the MTEA, School Board Director Tony Baez, parents, and educators as we stand up for our children in opposition to the disastrous Trumpcare bill.
