The School Finance Network (SFN), a coalition of nine organizations “committed to strengthening our system of public school funding,” will be presenting their plan to the public and the media today and Wednesday (2/3 and 2/4). Their website is up.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
