Wisconsin has sent 3,152 people to prison From April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.

    1. I’m sure she has a “plan.” Just ask her. That’s her answer to everything (although you are never told what that “plan” is).

      1. Obviously, I’m working for Lamar. He needs as much name recognition as possible. YSA represents a KUSD which is infected by “the prejudice of low expectations.” This is a term that has floated around for years, about which nothing is ever spoken. Yesterday, some idiot made a post on social media that Lamar hates black people. White liberals appear fearful of him, because he’s off their plantation. Watch them bitch that his recent mailing is funded by the 1776 Project, run by conservative, 60’s civil rights lawyer Bob Woodson, Sr., who, coincidentally only, has the same skin color as Lamar.
        Results, not good intentions, are all that should count in educating our children. KUSD is graduating a majority of students who are not proficient in reading or math. Proficiency scores continue to go down. If KCE readers would like to help Lamar with name recognition, I’m not sure how I could arrange for you to get some election flyers and hand them out. Perhaps an email or phone number through Mr. Mathewson?

  1. Remember Curtis the dean who gave tardy pants a new meaning. They promoted him to principal where he had sex with co workers. These are the leaders

    1. Why are they dipshits? Because they don’t like the direction our school system is going or because you are part of the problem?

  3. I go to Lakeview, and people have always had a problem with him. He was nice to the girls who hogged the counselor room to talk crap about other girls, and never had time to talk to the kids with actual problems. He was overworked too, and everyone could see that.

      1. Exactly- guidance counselors are meant to “guide” on career paths….. not to sit with kids whining about social media. Kusd needs to keep them printed to their actual job- career path guidance.

  4. I’m glad to have a student weighing in here.

    People who work for schools, run schools and serve on school boards all think they know what’s best for kids. And, yes, they have more experience but that doesn’t mean that the voice of the end users — consumers, if you will — are not important, too. They may occasionally have valuable input and should not be ignored.

    1. He simply did not interact with the large majority of students at a small school of only 400, we’ve had multiple counselors in the span of a few years and he has not been as helpful as the other two I’ve experienced.

  5. You talkin to me? I’m glad we can rid the school of this child-preying filth. Loneliness has followed me my whole life. Everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There’s no escape. I’m God’s lonely man…

    1. Allegedly, this guy is in a relationship with a former student that began while he was “counseling” that individual at Lakeview over the last few years.
