We talk to Mark Sommerhauser from Wisconsin Policy Forum about the new report on how Wisconsin is funding higher education.
Then we talk to Kriss Marion about Wisconsin Women in Conservation and Jane and Kristin can’t wait for their first field day with the group.
Guest: Mark Sommerhauser
Funding for Wisconsin’s public higher education systems is a tale of two stories, one that is funded eighth worst in the country and another that is fifth best, according to Wisconsin Policy Forums’ new report: Higher education funding stabilizes overall, but enrollment still falling.
We talk to Commeducations Director and Policy Researcher, Mark Somerhauser about the trends in funding, the differences between our higher education programs, and the role declining enrollment plays.
We talk to the dynamic Kriss Marion about the incredible program, Wisconsin Women in Conservation. It’s a group meant to bring together Wisconsin women landowners to connect and learn about conservation practices, resources, and funding opportunities.
Check out The Journal Sentinel’s story on the group: Programs to help farmers often are built for men. A new conservation project is changing that.
