UPDATE. Free-market, limited-government types push back against Christian Science Monitor article

'Reported' at Nygren: Shiocton school funding story misleading.  (Wisconsin Watchdog, 11/4/2016)
The John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy, a free-market [limited-government] think tank based in Madison, estimates that taxpayers have saved over $5 billion since Act 10 was passed in 2011.  [emphasis added]

Wisconsin Watchdog is a project of the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity,  It is one of a group of state websites that provide news and commentary on state and local politics from a free market, limited government perspective

From a 5/10/2016 Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty press release:
“WILL has established itself as a vanguard for limited government, free markets, and opportunity in the state of Wisconsin.  [emphasis added]

And John Nygren, it should be added here, is co-chair of the 'powerful' Joint Committee on Finance.

Original 10/31/2016 post, "Shiocton school superintendent puts fulltime librarian at top of her wish list", starts here.

Reported in In Wisconsin, rural superintendents turn to voters to keep schools going.  (Christian Science Monitor, 10/31/2016)
