Recently, I conducted an interview with Rep. Sondy Pope (D-Mount Horeb), ranking member of the Assembly Committee on Education, to get her thoughts on the governor’s budget proposal for schools and other legislation. This is the latest in a series of interviews I will be conducting with key state lawmakers to provide legislative insight on the state budget. We thank Rep. Pope for taking the time to join us!
Rep. Pope told me that she is hopeful for a return to two-thirds funding from the state as that has been a priority for a long time as well as a recommendation of the Blue Ribbon Commission on School Funding. She also talked about the needs of rural school districts and much more.
