BK the School Districts?

Odd chatter from somebody Up Nort'.

Tired of cutting hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from their district's budget, some board members have lost confidence that state elected officials will change Wisconsin's school funding formula.During the board's recent monthly meeting, Nekoosa School Board member Steve Bechard introduced a rough outline of a plan that would have the district and others like it stop making cuts ...

What's the Plan, Ozzie??

Bechard wants to encourage school boards throughout the state to halt budget reductions, pushing their school districts into bankruptcy.

OK. Whatever floats your boat. At least that will eliminate the retiree health/pension obligations.

I'm pretty sure the funding formula will result in LESS state money. Skool Boreds will have to figure out how to deal with their labor costs just like everyone else. Mequon-Thiensville has announced that teachers will be asked to make concessions. BK may very well take care of that little issue.

My recent experience with Skool Bored meetings is that teachers pack the meetings when there is a real issue on the agenda. And taxpayers be damned. And they are more than happy to make personal attacks (under their breath, of course) toward those with whom they disagree. Doesn't make me sympathetic to their cause.

Going up against the teachers and the Skool Bored is like "Tilting at Windmills". But at least it's futile.
