The Wisconsin Assembly has referred the Pope-Roberts resolution to reform public school finance by July 2009 to the “Education Reform” committee, chaired by Rep. Don Pridemore of Hartford in Washington County.
People should be contacting Rep. Pridemore (267-2367, Rep.Pridemore@legis.wisconsin.gov) to push for a Legislative hearing on school finance reform.
People in Pridmore’s district ESPECIALLY need to be contacting him.
Here’s a map of his district.
If any of you have contact to the Waukesha parents yesterday or know of people in Rep. Pridemore’s district, please pass on his phone number to them and have them call his office. This is the time to exert some pressure to push for a hearing on school finance. A hearing is a way to push the issue to the top of the pile of issues the Legislature must address.
