As You See It

Education

To the Editor,

February 13-17th is designated as, “I Love My Public School” week by the Wisconsin Public Education Network (a grassroots, non-partisan coalition supporting public schools).

Our Founding Fathers believed in public education. In 1785, John Adams wrote, “The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves.”

Early immigration resulted in a more diverse country. Public education was a means of unifying that population. That is relevant today! But I have concerns that a voucher system diminishes the effort to unify an increasingly diverse and divisive population!

I applaud public school boards, administrators, teachers, students , parents, and community members. All work to preserve a great asset. That is evident in our excellent Sheboygan County public schools!

Preserve this asset in Wisconsin by ensuring we have an effective leader in our state's Department of Public Instruction. Vote for incumbent DPI Superintendent, Tony Evers, February 21st (Spring Primary Election) and April 4th (Spring Election).

Tony Evers works hard to help Wisconsin children experience a world class education. He works to make our public school system fair and balanced for Wisconsin children no matter their zip code!

He grew up in Plymouth. He has been a teacher, school administrator, and now our DPI Superintendent. He loves public education, especially the kids, and will continue to stand up for our children and their public schools. Vote for Tony on February 21st and April 4th.

"I Love My Public School(s).” Thank you board members, administrators, teachers, parents, and community members for your efforts on behalf of children!

Priorities

To the Editor,

In 2011, legislation was passed that has given $20 MILLION to 11 people in our state as a tax break. This has been done with no strings attached- no jobs created, no living wage for current employees, no sharing of profit with employees, no assurance of a safe work place.

If you think this is unfair, and not good for the economic health of our state, please call your local representative and express your opinion. Call Rep. Tyler Vorpagel at 608 266-8530 and Senator Devin LeMahieu at 608 266-2056. Let them know that your priorities are for fairness to the hardworking families of Wisconsin.
