To do list

From a Wisconsin State Journal editorial

In Wisconsin we can give thanks that the coming months will bring opportunities to live up to the state’s motto, “Forward,” in some important areas, including:

Financing of public schools.

Almost no one is happy with the state’s unfair system for funding schools, though change has been stifled because alternatives generate opposition, too.

However, public discontent is now moving lawmakers closer to reform. At a hearing this month before the state Senate’s Education Committee, 112 people favored changing how Wisconsin pays for schools. One was opposed.

Let 2008 finally be the year for developing a better plan for school financing.

Sounds almost like support for the Pope-Roberts/Breske Resolution.
