School Days

I had a nice day visiting two schools in my Senate District. I started the morning with a meeting and school tour with Principal Smith at Whiterock Elementary School in Waukesha and headed out to Hartland Arrowhead to visit with four classes of Freshman and Sophomores.

I gave the students a brief update on what's going on in Madison and took questions for the remainder of each period. It turns out the kids are concerned about the same things we all are. They wanted to know about the state of our economy, if their parents would be able to retire on their 401ks, what is going on with possible mayoral control of MPS and expressed their thoughts on health care and the environment.

It is always interesting to visit our next generation of citizens and leaders. I had a great time.
