I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Property tax levies adopted by the state's school districts declined by $47 million this year - or 1% - and the office of Gov. Scott Walker cited the figures as evidence that GOP efforts to control school spending were working.
State education officials and the state's largest teachers' union argued, though, that the levy cuts, along with a $749 million decrease in state aid to public schools, were harming many schools throughout the state.
"Our reforms are protecting taxpayers while keeping our schools great," Walker said in a written statement. "Taxpayers are seeing their levies go down for the first time in six years, while our schools continue to meet the needs of Wisconsin students."
The Public Union Party wants us to think this is bad. Also, the school districts hurting are those that rushed contracts without using Governor Walker’s tools!
