Today’s highly interesting read (10/18/18): Another school referendum scam, this time in Cedarburg

Don’t put it past any school district in the state to sink to any level in order to get a massive property tax increase (school referendum) approved.

BTW Franklin readers, that would include our not-at-all perfect community.

The MacIver Institute has committed what my friend Charlie Sykes often referred to as “a flagrant act of journalism.”

They report on the November referendum in Cedarburg:

As the campaign to approve nearly $60 million in new spending heats up, some are wondering whether the Cedarburg School District pro-referendum crowd is stacking the deck.

Documents obtained by MacIver News Service through an open records request suggest that district officials were more concerned with tilting the results of a community survey than gauging public sentiment on the spending measure.

It may come as a shock to the many who put full faith and trust into their education intelligentsia, but Earth to the naive: Take off the blinders. They can’t be trusted.

Read the MacIver Institute report that you won’t read in the Journal Sentinel, here.
