Our good friend Deke Rivers over at Caffeinated Politics got the scoop on the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau's plans to Audit MATC.
The Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau decided on Wednesday that there will be an audit of the technical school system in the state. CP is waiting for the exact language outlining the scope of the audit. It was reported to me that MATC President Bettsey Barhorst was at the audit meeting on Wednesday and voiced strong opposition to any audit. Democratic Representative Marlin Schneider again stood up for the citizens and called out the reason such an audit was essential to be undertaken. If the head of MATC shows up with such energy to oppose an audit, there then seems even more reason to have one.
The Part-time Teacher's Union wonders what Mrs. Barhorst has to hide? Our hope is that this much overdue audit will shed some light on the real workings of a, thus far, very secretive organization.
