WSJ Article/Letters on School Funding Crisis–Get Involved in Sending a Statewide Message

Today’s WSJ has a spread on the damage Wisconsin’s state funding formula is having on public education, including bulleted message points. These are great talking points for letters to the editor, and even more importantly, letters to members of Joint Finance Committee.

The Wisconsin Joint Committee on Finance is currently taking testimony statewide from residents on the proposed Governor’s budget and has vast power in changing the budget before the Legislature votes on it. Senators Mark Miller and Mark Pocan of Madison are currently on Joint Finance, but it would be powerful to submit your letters to all 16 members.

Want to send a letter to the editor? Here are the three papers in Madison:

wsjopine@madison.com (WSJ)
tctvoice@madison.com (Cap Times)
edit@isthmus.com

More information and other sample letters can be found here.

CHALLENGE: Can AMPS members send 50 letters to Joint Finance and the papers in the next week???

    Interesting discussion of recent referenda (along with some ignorant stuff about Funding and good old fashioned union bashing) here:
