School Privatization Money Pours into Central Wisconsin

American Federation for Children defames Dave Gorski

In rightwing land, it's indecent. The way to campaign is for Scott Krug and his extremist friends to inflict as much psychological abuse as possible on a disabled rights champ, educator and public school advocate by claiming he is against rights for the disabled and public schools. Welcome to the muck where Krug resides.

Residents Question Public School Money Going to Private Schools

“I am paying for private schools with my taxes?” the women from Pepin asked following my presentation at a recent Town Hall meeting. “Yes, you are,” I told her.
 
Residents were surprised at the sharp increase in the state spending on private schools – nearly a doubling in seven years. At the same time, Pepin School District lost nearly half of its state support. With less state money, property taxes made up a larger share of school support.
 
Wisconsin has funded private schools in Milwaukee by taking money from local public schools for a long time.
 
With passage of the last state budget, private and independent charter schools in southeast Wisconsin cost state tax coffers $645 million.

Court rejects Walker pee-in-a-cup plea

A federal court has stymied the state of Wisconsin’s effort to drug test food stamp applicants.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) championed the drug test policy as he launched a doomed presidential bid in 2015. The Obama administration said federal law doesn’t allow states to drug test food stamp recipients, so the Walker administration asked a federal court to decide.

And they decided.  Once again proving that the current administration has very little concept of how federal law works, the court basically said that you cannot ask for a test on a law you have not written yet. This is  not quite the same as rejecting the plan to drug test benefit recipients, just that the Walker administration would need to first have their law be rejected, and then appeal. One more case of our govrernment's time and money being sucked up by legal posturing for pointless ideological purpooses.

Taking Credit for the Sun Coming Up

“Wisconsin lowered taxes and reduced regulation and that increased jobs in the state, right?” A journalist from a national newspaper asked about the state of our economy for a story he was writing.
 
“The assumption you are making is that the only thing holding back growth is taxes paid by business,” I told the reporter. “And regulation,” he added.
 

John Doe II - it's dead

Scott Walker

This morning the US Supreme court rejected the appeal on the John Doe II case. The case, which was brought by three county district attorneys, was the last hope for continuation of the John Doe probe in Wisconsin. We can now assume that the investigaition is officially dead, and that the corruption, pay-for-play, and flow of dark money into the state will continue.
