WEAC Rally on Saturday with Peggy Wirtz Olsen, President of the Wisconsin Education Council

Peggy Wirtz Olsen, President of the Wisconsin Education Association Council  WEAC joins the show to make the case that – if our schools are going to keep outstanding educators in the profession and attract the next generation of great teachers – lawmakers must pass a state budget that provides inflationary per-pupil increases, more mental health supports, and fair pay.
