Looks Like DPI/WI Needs a Budget Cut
Offhand, I think that a 40% cut to the DPI budget makes a lot of sense.
An EAGnews/WILL report published last month – "DPI’s War on Wisconsin’s School Choice Program" – hit home for the Racine parent, who requested anonymity out of fear of retaliation against his child’s school by state Department of Public Instruction officials.
"We almost lost our voucher after school already started because we finally got married, and my wife’s last name on our taxes and on our application didn’t match," the father of two said. "They said the name didn’t match the taxes, and they were basically trying to cancel the voucher.
"It was the Department of (Public Instruction) that brought it to the school, and they had to come back to us to straighten it out."
A lot less DPI means a lot less of their mean-girl games, no?
