At 5am this morning, I found out about 9 amendments to AB183 that the Assembly will be voting on today at 1:00 or at some time after that. Guess I better quick figure out what these amendments do . . . .
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.
