Ok…so this is only anecdotal evidence…but I going with it. I had to make an unplanned business trip to Door County Friday night – Saturday. Along HWY 42 just north of the Two Rivers high school is a billboard touting the advantages of the Two Rivers public school system. This is red Manitowoc County so the billboard took me by surprise…but do you suppose vouchers are starting to have an impact in red counties too? Or the continued cuts to public education? Not sure but it seems to be a strange expenditure if they don’t feel some sort of threat.
But one of the more interesting attributes that the billboard listed: Spanish taught K – 12…bilingual education. This maybe is something that Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, et all should pay attention to…not everyone in red America thinks speaking Spanish is a bad idea.
Correction (maybe): My wife says that my memory is faulty and that it was Algoma Public Schools…which gets even interesting because they are in even redder Kewaunee County.
