You don’t have to pay to park downtown, or anywhere really, in Winona. But under Republican legislative control, that’s about to change for Winona teachers who will now be charged to park in the lots at the schools where they teach. That’s on top of the fact that most teachers have to pay for school supplies out of their own pockets because their schools are underfunded.
This, and many district-wide cuts, comes after House Republicans voted to disinvest in statewide K-12 education and defund pre-k, which will make it harder for children to get an equal education.
