Walker Refuses to Answer WASB Survey

So some lefty school board member is upset at this.

Doug Perry, a retired teacher and former president of the Greenfield Education Association, is now a school board member in South Milwaukee. He voiced his disappointment over Walker’s silence in a letter published by the Wisconsin Education Association Council and the Capital Times opinion section.

Perry said he was “insulted and embarrassed” for his constituents and the children in his district by Walker’s refusal to answer the questions WASB posed.

“So the WASB, which is a member-driven organization of 424 communities that supports, promotes and advances the interests of public education in Wisconsin, is now an ‘interest group’?

Hmmm… “interest group“…

Interest group, also called special interest group or pressure group,  any association of individuals or organizations, usually formally organized, that, on the basis of one or more shared concerns, attempts to influence public policy in its favour. All interest groups share a desire to affect government policy to benefit themselves or their causes.

From the WASB website:

Advocating on behalf of Wisconsin public school boards and the students they serve.

Sounds like an interest group to me.
