More money given to unaccountable voucher schools with less to the public schools who have so much accountability? I'm disgusted!

Gov Walker is so out in right field - out of touch - down right stupid. His tactics for voucher schools have no standards of accountability. Wasn't public education established to create a literate public at a time when industrialization brought so many people into cities from the country sides and no one knew how to read or write. It's public, it could be improved but don't throw the baby and bath water out. It's what we have free and public education - let's invest and improve and update it and preserve it.

We will just have to try a little harder 14'. Words cannot describe the "hate" I have for this dictating thug and what he has done to this state, Walker has truly divided this state, and I don't see how we will ever recover from the antics he, and his party has done here. Just sucks.

Public Education is the backbone of our democratic society. The state has the responsibility of funding public education so all children can and will succeed. Vouchers drain funds from public schools and local communities and place money into the hands of those who can more likely pay the difference for a private education. This results in a lose in programs for children who greatly need a good public education in order to become productive citizens of this country. We all lose when money for vouchers drain funds from public education.

A Republican running to be Wisconsin’s schools superintendent has blacklisted five reporters he considers biased. An internal memo from state Rep. Don Pridemore’s campaign says he will not call the five back or give phone interviews to them or their media outlets.

A Republican running to be Wisconsin’s schools superintendent has blacklisted five reporters he considers biased. An internal memo from state Rep. Don Pridemore’s campaign says he will not call the five back or give phone interviews to them or their media outlets. It names Mary Spicuzza of the Wisconsin State Journal, David Umhoefer and Patrick Marley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jack Craver of The Capital Times and Scott Bauer of The Associated Press. Craver provided a copy of the memo to the AP on Sunday. The Hartford Republican is challenging incumbent Superintendent Tony Evers, who’s led the state Department of Public Instruction for four years. The job is officially a nonpartisan post. “If the reporter requests an interview, they must submit their questions in a written form and they will receive a written response to only those questions we want to respond to,” the memo said. “These are all LIBERAL’s and have chosen to parse words, phrases and spin my responses to fit their agendas. If they continue to spin our written responses, they will be ignored in the future.” http://www.gazettextra.com/weblogs/latest-news/2013/mar/17/gop-superintendents-campaign-blacklists-news-repor/

Gov. Walker does not care about YOUR CHILD. Did you hear about the wolf coming in sheep's clothing? Ten years from now, if this trend continues, our public schools will be extinct. Special education needs students are not going to be serviced. He is destroying the schools in our state.

Why is our Gov. doing everything he can to undermine education in our public schools? Then, he wants to give us an income tax break? No wonder he never graduated from college.

Lets get back to basics, we have public schools here, use them. you want to go to a private school, you fit the bill and don't ask the people who send there kids to a public school to bail you out.

Accountability in all areas is my biggest concern. Not just general accountability but also hiring practices. They are not required to follow same state guidelines as public schools or school district requirements either.
