Scott Walker Slaps Down Blaska

Posted September 15th, 2014 @ 10:56 AM by

In case you have not heard, Scott Walker’s campaign manager, Michael Grebe,  is suing the Madison School District.    Well, Grebe could not sue the district directly, since he does not live here and he is too busy selling off Northern WI.  In order to make the plans work, they had to find a stooge in […]

Elizabeth Coppola in the 21st!

Posted November 15th, 2013 @ 10:58 PM by

Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it! Broken deals, petulant behavior, single-minded focus on an extreme social agenda at the expense of legislation to put Wisconsinites to work and move our state forward… If you watched last night and this morning on WisconsinEye, read about it in the papers this morning, […]

Privatization Pirates!

Posted November 7th, 2013 @ 8:07 AM by

Watching Captain Phillips recently, my wife turned to me and said “I’ve found someone who has a harder job than I do”. I pointed out that, that is because the pirates have found a legal way to steal your money! The fight to protect our public schools is getting harder and harder by the day. […]

The Voucher Scam!

Posted August 17th, 2013 @ 1:25 PM by

The truth of school Vouchers is slowly starting to come out and its not pretty. While Scott Walker, Robin Vos, et al. will tell you that they have “reformed” education, they will not be telling you the truth. Let’s start in Wisconsin where the republican minority have greatly increased the public education money that is […]

Good Meeting Tweet, Brings Bad Journalism

Posted June 20th, 2013 @ 2:36 PM by

Apparently in today’s Wisconsin, random “tweets” are now what is classified as news! We have one of the most extreme budgets in our history being passed quickly through the Wisconsin statehouse, major cuts to education, an abysmal 2 + year Abysmal economy in Wisconsin and our paper of record is combing through random tweets! Honestly! […]

Another Victim

Posted June 2nd, 2013 @ 7:29 AM by

Governor Scott Walker and his Wisconsin legislative cronies have claimed another victim in their war on the locally owned “Mom and Pop” store! Johannsen’s Greenhouse, a Madison establishment since 1960 will be closing at the end of the summer! Karen said the family had no immediate plans to close shop, but then an unsolicited offer […]

D-Day for Public Education

Posted May 29th, 2013 @ 8:43 AM by

Today is the day that we have been discussing for weeks. Today is the day that the legislature starts discussing public school funding. Unfortunately for the children and the future of the state it doesn’t look good: As we know the privatize our schools lobby is well funded and staffed with incredibly unethical people. The […]

Be Careful Who Your “Friends” Are!

Posted December 10th, 2012 @ 12:04 AM by

I recently attended the Educate to Elevate Conference in Madison, and I was very skeptical going in. While I left the conference just as skeptical, I think there were a few good things that came out of it. It is never bad when people get together and discuss ways to improve education. I also had […]

View from Outside the Bubble!

Posted December 4th, 2012 @ 2:02 PM by

When I first started with Forwardlookout, we brought you the stories of how Sunny Schubert writes a local column disguised as public interest, in the Herald-Independent when in fact she is actually a paid hack of the far right wing extremist organization WPRI. As if that was not bad enough, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also […]
