AT: Wisconsin Club | 6200 West Good Hope Road, 53223 (414-353-8800)
TIME: 11:30 A.M. Social/Sign-In | 12:00 P.M. Luncheon

Speakers: Dr. Kirsten Lombard, Ph.D. and Dr. Jeffrey Horn, Ph.D.

Wisconsin education is on the ballot in February and again in April. It’s vital we understand the issues so we can identify and champion a DPI candidate that will get us out of the mess the educational pundits and academic elitists have gotten us into. Kirsten and Jeff are grassroots activists who have spent the last several years focusing on state and national education issues. They bring valuable insight on how educational problems in Wisconsin and nationally have morphed and why Common Core is now no longer the biggest problem we face, either here or across the nation. In particular, they’ll discuss currently proposed Wisconsin legislation that spells more trouble and provide their take on what would need to happen to restore true education at this point. They’ll also address the upcoming DPI election here in Wisconsin and how it all fits together. So, there will be plenty for us all to dig into!

RSVP by Tues noon, January 17 – the earlier, the easier our job! We meet at the Wisconsin Club on Good Hope, with complimentary valet parking. Dine well on squash soup, stir fried tenderloin tips with mushrooms, bell peppers, celery, onion, and water chestnuts n a teriyaki-pepper sauce served over steamed scallion Jasmine rice and cake for dessert. Vegetarian entree available, if pre-ordered.
