Is Save Janesville Schools a worthy cause?
Ask yourselves these questions: How important are good schools to our children, grandchildren and neighborhood children? How critical are good schools to a city’s hopes for attracting new business and industry?
Sure, some folks will see irony and even hypocrisy in Janesville teachers and their union trying to raise money to save school district jobs.
After all, these folks won’t reopen their contract to help the district out of a $13.4 million deficit, and they joined protesters who harassed local business people arriving to hear Gov. Scott Walker’s speech last week at Forward Janesville’s annual dinner meeting.
So will you give to this fundraiser?
We’ll share our perspective on this fundraising effort in our editorial Sunday.
