Changing the way we think about school choice

Over at the MacIver Institute, I wrote about the latest Marquette University Law School poll’s results concerning expanding school choice statewide. They weren’t good. It was disappointing to read the results of the latest Marquette University Law School Poll regarding private school choice.

The Dorow campaign begins ground game by planting the flag

Yep, Brian Dorow’s campaign is already putting out yard signs even though a special election for the 33rd state senate district hasn’t been called yet. It would be funny if Senator Paul Farrow changed his mind and decided to complete his term. It has to be weird for Farrow to see signs going up. “Do you guys mind?

But in Madison, it’s apparently a requirement of office, and the profile picture on Mayor Paul Soglin’s Facebook page. One comment on the photo, but typical of the other comments: One of my early memories of Paul Soglin was his visit to Sellery Hall where... [Read more]
