Elizabeth Coppola in the 21st!

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, […]

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. […]

It’s not just me pointing out that the republicans, led by Scott Walker, want to privatize(and profit from) public education. Let’s take a look: 1. Bruce Murphy from Urban Milwaukee: The word was out last year that Republican Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald intended to retire and make the big money working as a lobbyist. Two […]

We recently brought you the story of how much money the public school privateers are willing to spend in order to profit off of our children’s education!

Posted March 10th, 2013 @ 8:29 AM by

The Monona Grove Board of Education, building principals and district office administrators, and teachers (Monona Grove Education Association) join together to urge legislators to oppose any expansion of the voucher program for schools.

As the Cartoonish Chief Erwin sends his minions all over the state to issue tickets for singing in the Capitol, (purportedly for gathering in groups of four or more) yet he is selective in who gets these tickets! H/T Rebecca Kemble for this picture from Inauguration Day: I checked Ccap and none of these people […]
