As back to school week continues in Wisconsin we want to draw your attention to a particularly timely and provocative forum Thursday evening. Sponsored by two community organizations – Team Gold, a west side Madison neighborhood team, and the Middleton Action Team, a handful of presenters including State Senators Kathleen Vinehout and Dale Schultz and UW Madison Education School Dean Julie Underwood are participating in “How Many Students Left Behind? – An Interactive Community Conversation on the Future of Our Public Schools.” Topics will include the state of the state’s education budget, vouchers and various charters schools and their financial impact and the needs of rural districts. There will be short presentations, responses and audience questions.


These are hugely important issues and we like the approach these groups are taking to answer them. We invite your participation at 7 p-m at the Middleton Performing Arts Center. Somehow the answer to “How Many Kids Left Behind” has to get closer to zero.
