Milwaukee, WI (February 2018) — For its 20th year anniversary, Osinga Law Offices, S. C. is creating a resource for Wisconsin public school teachers.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of his law office, Attorney John D. Osinga has added a website page that helps make legal advice more accessible to Wisconsin public school teachers. Osinga Law Offices has launched the new website page, Public Schools, to document some of the personal and legal challenges faced by not only teachers but also parents and students.

The Public Schools page is an online resource where attorney Osinga shares extensive examples from his personal experience with the dysfunction of a Milwaukee area school district. Website visitors will be able to review school district records that aren’t readily accessible to the public.

These records, which include videos of sworn testimony, illustrate the lengthy and ongoing course of dysfunction within the school district. This included inconsistent enforcement of school district bullying policies, multiple violations of the Open Records Law, discriminatory and/or subjective implementation of a teacher merit pay policy, and the waste of public taxpayer monies from avoidable or ill-advised litigation.

“The real key to quality education is not found in administrators, school boards, academic experts, or lawmakers. Other than parents and the students themselves, the classroom teacher remains the most important factor for successful student learning in our public schools,” stated Osinga.

The “Public Schools” resource provides teachers an option for keeping their careers and livelihood from being unfairly jeopardized in the current public school environment. “The school district’s records paint a graphic picture of how effective and ethical teachers can have their professional careers compromised for reasons unrelated to their classroom performance,” concluded Osinga. “They also show how student learning and safety are easily jeopardized when school districts allow their policies to simply become window dressing.”
