Scott Walker blows his dog whistle, by declaring this week "school choice" week and guess what......
The dogs come running! and thy are all trying to bark as loudly as they can to be the one dog noticed in a pack of rabid astroturf!
There was this, this and this to start and of course when the Governor needs to say something, Astroturf in Action rolls out the money and the red carpet to him!
It is time to stop the massive grab for our children's education funds!
For our factually challenged friends, we already have school choice, For those who want to just steal our childrens education money for your own bank account - yes I mean you Scooter Jensen: Go climb under the floorboards where you belong!!
For the rest of you who truly care about (Y)our children's education, let us make sure that they are fully funded. We can make sure that ALL of our kids, get a solid education by funding our public schools. We can make it so when we speak of "school choice" that means that our kids can choose between different languages, or a business department or Physics or advanced Biology. Let us have enough staff to help the teachers and the students who need it. Let the schools be fully staffed in nurses, counselors, social workers, etc ... to make sure and be able to help the kids who so desperately need it! let's stop with the stadardized tests and pay our teachers when they advance their careers academically.
That is TRUE school Choice, not the snake oil Scooter and Scotty are trying to sell us.
