Mequon-Thiensville Makes a Run at the Title

Of worst school district in the state. At least in terms of being disingenuous, sneaky, and unwilling to listen to their residents' wishes. My own Racine Unified School District still holds that title, and it will be difficult to wrest from them. After all this is a school district that:

Phew. That kind of anger will eat you up inside. Anyway, Mequon-Thiensville. Right. Here's their efforts to take over the title of worst school district in Wisconsin.

I absolutely HATE referendums that are scheduled at times other than normal voting days. They disenfranchise a lot of people and they cost the taxpayers extra money. Plus, they give public agencies, like school districts, the ability to just ignore the results of a previous referendum-- from as little as three months previous-- and to try, try again. And again. And again. Until they get the result they want.

Oddly enough, taxpayers don't get that option. If the tax increase referendum passes, we do not have the option of scheduling a new referendum, or of threatening to close the school district offices if they don't figure out a way to live within their means. We just get to pay. And pay. And pay some more.
