Spent most of the time with Martinez, essentially the teachers’ union president, talking about the future consolidation plans of the school district and how combining and middle and high school might work — or not work. We also had some fun talking about what a short week before the holiday is like and whether teachers get apples anymore.
Doyle joined to discuss Wisconsin’s ever-growing budget surplus, that is projected to hit $6.6 billion by July. Doyle has said repeatedly the Legislature should be doing something with this money “yesterday.” We hear his ideas.
