Greenfield School Districts Stands Up For Its Students

It's good to see people aren't rolling over and taking the crap that the Teapublicans are dishing out:
Greenfield’s interim superintendent David Ewald said the voucher program and other initiatives like charter schools don’t have a proven track record, and questioned the economic feasibility of expanding the voucher program.

“The intent of voucher schools was to give school choice to students who live in poverty,” he said. “But if it spreads, creating another school system in addition to the one we have would be a huge cost.”

On Monday, the School Board is likely to unanimously support a resolution crafted by board member Robert Hansen denouncing the voucher program and expressing the district’s unified opposition to it.

Board member Rick Moze said one of his biggest issues with the voucher program is its lack of accountability.

“As far as I know, it’s the only state-funded program with no regulations,” Moze said.
State Representative Mike Kuglitsch - whom I'm afraid is now my gerrymandered representative and whose only claim of fame is running a bowling alley in the middle of nowhere - showed that he's gotten his head stuck in the return chute once too often with this inane comment:
In a statement earlier this week, State Representative Mike Kuglitsch (R-New Berlin), who district includes part of Greenfield, praised the expansion of the “promising school choice program.”

“Not all students learn the same way, and we must give parents the tools to send their children to a school that best fits their needs,” he said.
The only tool I see in this deal is Kuglitch.

But what does he care as long as he keeps cashing in his two paychecks - the one paid for by the taxpayers and the one paid for by ALEC.


  1. "Take back Wisconsin". On a side-note, the other state-funded program with no regulations would be WEDC.

  2. And WEDC is doing fantastic!!! Wait, er......never mine......

  3. I love how there are so many ignorant people. It's amusing. If people (particularly Republicans) opened their eyes and looked into things more, they'd realize Republicans are ruining our nation. Privatizing Social Security? Real nice--I don't know how Republicans like that idea.

  4. The TeaPublican/Evangelical/Neanderthal Politburo tries it's best to keep women barefoot and preggers and to keep children dumb, fat and stupid...just how they like them...a critical thinking person is not part of their voter pool
