Survey data from fall 2011 shows vast majority of WI students are attending schools that cut staff in 2011-12--meaning there are fewer adults in the state's public schools helping children learn.

Nearly 90 percent of Wisconsin school districts responded. More information, including complete analysis of the results, is available at http://dpi.wi.gov/pb/11-13_budget.html.

This press conference was held November 10, 2011, at Monona Grove High School to address the issue. Speakers include:

- State Superintendent Tony Evers
- Superintendent Craig Gerlach, Monona Grove School District
- School Board President Susan Fox, Monona Grove School District
- Superintendent Jamie Benson, River Valley School District
- Sue Howe, family and consumer education teacher, Monona Grove School District
- Dana Kingsley, parent, Wisconsin Dells
- Kemal Kirchmeier, student, Pardeeville High School
