The February meeting of the League of Women Voters of the Northwoods (LWVNOW) will be a joint meeting with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of the Northwoods. The meeting will begin at the Pine Lake Town Hall with dessert at 12:30 PM. This will give us a chance to visit with members of both AAUW and the LWVNOW. At 1 PM our program will begin with presenters Dr. John Sample, Superintendent of Merrill Area Public Schools, and Brian Dasher, Finance Director for the Merrill Area Public Schools. We will learn the difference between charter schools and voucher schools. What impact do these have on public education funding? Why are so many school districts having referendums to keep their districts running? What are alternate ways of funding education? Bring your questions about school funding and learn about current funding options
