UP: Madison schoolchildren. Madison school superintendent Jennifer Cheatham proposes a $31 million, five-year technology plan, which would give every student a tablet computer. The key to a good education is an expensive device with a one-year warranty.
DOWN: State Rep. Joel Kleefisch. The Oconomowoc Republican draws national derision for proposing a bill that would limit how much wealthy parents have to pay in child support after revelations that a millionaire donor, Michael Eisenga, helped write it. Eisenga pays $15,000 a month in support for three children and would have benefited from his suggested legislation. Media later report that Eisenga travels in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce and has enrolled his children in BadgerCare, a program intended for low-income families. Kleefisch pulls the bill after initially defending it.
