Wisconsin education department and university system spent at least $20K on 2014 White Privilege Conference

White Privilege and Prejudice

MADISON – The White Privilege Conference is a taxpayer-funded event and taxpayers deserve to know how their money is being spent.

The Wisconsin-based MacIver News Service reports:

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and University of Wisconsin System spent more than $20,000 on the White Privilege Conference according to records available at the state’s transparency website, OpenBook.wi.gov.

According to OpenBook.wi.gov, the UW System spent $18,157.50 on the conference and DPI spent $2,070.

The UW System spent $9,040.50 on travel expenses for non-state employees, $5,000 on professional services relating to the conference, and $4,117 on travel costs for an in-state conference, convention, and training.

Progressives Today is publishing a four-part video series this week examining the rhetoric of the radical anti-American speakers at the conference, and the type of left-wing, Marxist training that the many K-12 teachers are the conference received. Part 2 is published on this site today.

Here’s the preview:

Here’s Part 1:

Coming Thursday, we’ll review the real goal of the radicals: Teaching White Privilege theories in elementary school classrooms.
