The right wing Walton Family Foundation gave over $4 million dollars to fund the destruction of public education in Milwaukee in 2014. Why? Because billionaires know that once public education is destroyed in Wisconsin, that they can fully cash in on students in this state.
The following schools and organizations received money in 2014 from the right-wing Walton Family Foundation.
