Sondy Pope-Roberts is hosting a press conference to highlight her bill calling for an overhaul of school finance by July 2009 Thursday, April 19 at 10 a.m. in the Capitol’s Assembly Parlor on the second floor of the West Wing (State Street). Please try to make it to show overall state support for this important initiative!!

I was at the Capitol today and went to see where this is being held. When you enter the Capitol from the street, you are on the ground floor. Go up two levels. The Assembly Parlor, where the news conference is being held, is in the West Gallery (State Street Entrance). It is left of the Assembly. If you feel lost, ask at the information desk in the rotunda located at the King Street side of the Capitol.
See you there,
Regarding the press conference, Sondy P-R invited a member of the MMSD student senate to actually speak at the press conference. Jacinth, the alternate student rep on the board, is going to speak. The Student Senate will have representatives at the press conference.
Thursday night, prior to the BOE public hearing at Memorial, the student senate is going to hold a press conference at Memorial on the affects of the state funding system in their lives.
Just to be clear, the resolution is good and worth passing, but it does not commit anyone to do anything to change school financing in Wisconsin.
