Locally, there will be a press conference with Madison School Board Member Beth Moss and State Rep. Sondy Pope-Roberts at today at 12:30 p.m., Glacier Edge Elementary School, Verona.

SFN has been at work on this for a long time.  They have produced a very good set of proposals.  Check it out, get involved, take action.

CAST is working with SFN coalition members and others to make sure that school funding is addressed in a positive way this legislative session.  Contact CAST: madisoncast@sbcglobal.net.
