Substantive Issues

  1. Madison's taxpayer supported K-12 school district, despite spending far more than most, has long tolerated disastrous reading results.

  2. Madison recently expanded its least diverse schools.

  3. Reading Interventionist Teacher's Remarks to the School Board on Madison's Disastrous Reading Results.

  4. 2020 referendum climate: Madison spends 1% of its budget on maintenance vs Milwaukee's 2%, according to the Districts CFO. Milwaukee serves 77,746 students, about three times the number Madison taxpayers support.
