On Changes to add academic rigor in high schools would begin in 2014
I like realist.
On State taking notice of Edgerton school-manufacturer partnership
wow. You know not of what you speak. Public schools in Wisconsin lead the nation in graduation rate, have some of the highest ACT college entrance exam scores, and the highest participation and passing rate for Advanced Placement courses/exams in the Midwest.
I think we are getting a lot for our investment.
On Evansville Bible group, communty efforts lead to large cross by Highway 14
Ummm. Yeah. Why is this a story?
On We have the opportunity to reinvest in public schools
Honorfirst....tell me again how Wisconsin's public education system is failing? Is the highest graduation rate in the nation on par with failing? How about the highest college entrance exam scores in the midwest-- is that failing too? How about the highest percent of students participating in Advanced Placement classes and the highest percent of those kids passing g the AP exams so they can receive some college credit-- is that failing too?Public education has been the foundation of our democracy, and if you want the great experiment of government by the people and for the people to not perish from this earth, then we should be working to support and strengthen it, and not rip it apart.
On Primary likely in Janesville School Board race
Mr. Lichtfuss might think he is qualified to work as a school psychologist, but the state of Wisconsin hasn't given him a license to do so.
His evasiveness in his answers here leave a lot to be desired. Can't imagine that he would serve the community well.
On Edgerton pushes for iPads in class
MGD...what is the basis for your to say our education system is failing? Is it the fact that over the past five years WI has either been 1 or 2 in highest graduation rates in the nation? Is it the fact that WI is for more than a decade in the top 3 for best overall ACT college entrance exam scores? Maybe it is because WI has one of the highest rates of student participation in Advanced Placement courses as well as students passing those exams to receive college credit? Yup. that makes a pretty strong case that our education system is failing. #FAIL
On Rock County voters set a new record
Yeah Sigma...remember how the founders of this great nation had to show the people their oil portraits painted on canvass in order to be able to sign the Declaration of Independence?
On 'Handbook' a concern this school year
I strongly suggest JSD board members consult with the Tomah SD board members. They just implemented their handbook after a year of great collaboration between district administration and staff.
While Act 10 may say you cannot negotiate with staff on certain topics, there is NOTHING that says you cannot consult, discuss, and review options.
That is the pathway forward.
On Thompson win may signal GOP shift in Wisconsin
Libertybelle: you need to calm down. You seem very stressed about this issue. We wouldn't want you to have a stroke and then have a pre-existing condition that wouldn't be covered by your health insurance if your imaginary future Senate is able to repeal Obamacare...
On School district warns of door-to-door seller
Kenny--a nice sentiment, but this article will have no impact on the level of rudeness Janesville residents will show door-to-door salesfolk...or any folk for that matter...
