“Never have to do this again,” Sign the Petition, Work for Change

Through the whole Madison Metropolitan School District budget process, but especially at the hearing last night, the bridge of the John Prine song “Fish and Whistle” keeps going through my head:

And when we get through we’ll make a big wish
That we never have to do this again, again, again…

The only way we can make that happen is state level reform and the best short and long term places to work for that are the Penny for Kids campaign and the Wisconsin Alliance for Excellent Schools.  If you share my desire to put an end to the “death by a thousand cuts” that is bleeding education in Wisconsin, sign the Penny petition, learn more, write your State Reps, a letter to the editor… and get involved.
