Help Is On The Way
Tonight was a great night! I attended a meeting at Gateway concerning the issue of school vouchers. State Representative Robin Vos was the guest speaker. The meeting was attended by about twenty people, many having a connection with St. Catherine High School. The purpose of the meeting, it seemed, was to discuss the means by which a voucher program, like the one in Milwaukee, could be brought to Racine. There was no outcome from this meeting, other than a commitment to move forward. It is not at all clear what the next move will be, but at some point an effort to educate the public will be a big part of the plan. Bringing vouchers to Racine will not be easy. Expect a long and needlessly divisive struggle. But it is a struggle worth undertaking. This effort really is "for the children."
