APPLETON (WFRV) — Supporters of public education continue to speak out against proposed budget cuts.

The focal point of demonstrations in Appleton was Senator Roger Roth’s office on College Avenue.  Before heading outside, the Fox Cities Advocates for Public Education met at the Appleton library and voiced their concerns about budget cuts to education.

“We love and support our schools,” Ann Muenster with the Fox Cities Advocates for Public Education said.  “We call on legislators to do the right thing and do what’s right for Wisconsin’s children.  Our children deserve fair funding for their public schools and their future’s depend on us.”

The demonstration was one of several that took place across the state Monday.
