Among the many things covered were the February and April elections with the La Crosse School Board on the ballot, as well as a $60 million operating budget referendum question.
Martinez, who teachers Middle School at Logan, also discussed Lincoln Middle School closing.
We hit on the teacher shortage and some ideas in using Wisconsin’s projected $7.1 billion budget surplus in education. Throughout the show, we also talked about some of the ups and downs that teachers go through, and whether students should have homework.
