Libby ain't buyin' it

With this kind of post title, I need to go back to school.

Anyway, it appears that the head DPI schoolmaster is not buying Senator Judy Robson's figures for the school budget-

"Respectfully, without a formal budget agreement from the Legislature and the governor, the most accurate data available today remains the level of general equalization aid that is currently authorized in state statute," she wrote.

I cannot blame DPI Superintendent Burmaster. She can only work with the figures she is guaranteed to get. So far, that is last year's numbers.

At this moment Senator Robson and 17 Democrats in the Senate are holding up the entire school budgeting process because they refuse to fully fund schools and vote on AB 506.(already passed in the Assembly) Every single school districts budget is being held hostage!

It is high time these 18 Democrats stop playing games with Wisconsin's children and vote on AB 506. I promise- it not going to kill you!
