Apparently, there was a rally on Sunday by a group promoting the liberal education agenda.

Those at a rally in support of public education that drew more than 70 people to Old Settlers Park in West Bend on Sunday called for full funding for schools from the state, a moratorium on vouchers and private charter school expansion, the restoration of social workers and librarians in West Bend schools and the creation of a 4K program in the district.
Anne Molineu, a parent from West Bend and a member of Benders For Better Public Education, the group that organized the rally, shared with the crowd a students’ bill of rights, pertaining to the West Bend School District.
Eh, whatever. It is their right. I would point out a couple of things. First, if you read through the story, it appears that most of the speakers came from outside of West Bend (Wauwatosa, Appleton, Milwaukee, Lake Mills). Second, this group really dislikes the current superintendent. Third, if you check out this video from the rally by Judy Steffes, “70 people” would be a very generous crowd estimate.
Once you filter out the people from out of town and the organizers, how many Benders were actually at this rally?
