Blaska goes out of his way to provoke change

in Madison’s public schools!

David Blaska is running for Madison school board after all. No, his name won’t be on the ballot because he is a write-in for Seat #4. That’s the one occupied by school board president Ali Muldrow.

We were opponents three years ago and Ali (truly a lovely young lady in many ways) beat me handily. Likely will again, since Blaska is a write in this time and is not spending $20,000 like last time. But the only race for the three seats open this April 5 is over at Seat 3 between Laura Simkin and a transgendered performance artist who claims to be a blind, black albino with pronouns.

Madison voters unhappy with the direction of Madison’s public schools ought to be able to register a protest vote. Three years ago the Wisconsin State Journal would not endorse Blaska or Muldrow:

Blaska is right that a police officer should stay in each main high school to promote safety, and that disruptive students should be accountable for their actions. But he goes out of his way to provoke Madison liberals and score political points, while offering few solutions.

Few solutions? Still find that inexplicable. Identify, if you can, the solutions the current school board offers or implemented. The school board voted unanimously to defund school resource police officers and is only just now thinking about convening a committee to study (wait for it) … school safety. Meanwhile, riots at East high school, beatings at La Follette, the whacking at West, and teenagers crashing stolen cars and running through back yards.

David Blaska’s solutions …

Are guaranteed to provoke Madison liberals progressives.  Maybe they need a good provoking! It’s essentially the same platform we talked up in 2019 and more critical than ever:

•  Return school resource police officers to the four high schools and deploy some to the middle schools.

•  Abolish Jennifer Cheatham’s dysfunctional Behavior Education Program.

•  Put teachers back in control of their classroom and principals back in charge of their schools.

•  Remove disruptive students.

•  Boil down the 111-page District Safety Plan to the essentials, beginning with: “Call 9-1-1 First, then Contact Parents.”

•  Quit teaching that Madison is institutionally racist, that some kids are implicitly biased, and that success depends on racial “privilege.”

•   Keep schools open.

•  Reduce central administration staff.

•  Hold the line on taxes. Property taxes up 8.9% in one year.

•  Get federal and state governments to abjure race statistics, including the U.S. Census.

•  Seek changes in the state criminal code to make parents criminally liable for the crimes of their minor children.

•  Apologize to “Mr. Rob,” the positive behavior coach forced out at Whitehorse middle school for trying to remove a disruptive student who beat him about the face.


Academic performance continues to disappoint, the racial discipline gap hasn’t budged, youth crime is exploding throughout the city. Progressive Dane, Freedom Inc., Madison Teachers Inc., The Capital Times, the Democrat(ic) party of Dane County, the state employees union have owned and operated this school district for the last 30 years. Can we stop doing crazy?

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Discipline is the greatest lesson we can teach our kids.

Isn’t it time for some REAL diversity?
Diversity of thought!

    Bravo! The program is solid. Back to the basics and some discipline will do a lot for so many who are performing horribly in school. And Madison needs a contrary voice on the school board (and lots of other places). How can we help, David?

    The current school board is “thinking of convening a committee to study … school safety.” Which should surprise no one since that’s what liberals do best: “study” (i.e., dither endlessly over) problems rather than solve them–and the simpler a problem is (e.g., safety officers in schools=safer schools), the more study it needs. “Can we stop doing crazy?” Not when the crazies are permanently in charge, the way they are in Madison. That said, best of luck on your write-in campaign.

    This is what Madison has become.

    No doubt these “scholars” were our after midnight studying late.

    In any event they sure seem to have “learned” the Madison Way of sneering and mocking people doing actual labor. Give them an all-expenses-paid trip to grad school critical studies, on the backs of laborers toiling the night shift. It’s the only answer for these poor marginalized youths.

    Great news, of course, Dave. Whether it’s accomplished or not is a whole ‘nuther story. And you know that. But one must applaud any effort that seeks to offset BS like this:

    A Democratic state representative, one of the state party’s officials, said parents should send their kids to private school or home-school them if they want to have a say in their education.

    Rep. Lee Snodgrass (D-Appleton) later deleted the tweet…

    And “for a fact” further, I know the Squire would never delete a post, comment or tweet. He’s kinda honest about what he says and why.

    David, you reference Madison progressives, but that’s ambiguous. In this context, I think you want to use a descriptor that focuses on Progressives that believe that Teachers Are Royalty and Demi-gods. The implied acronym “ProTARD”s works for me, what do you think?
