UP: Gov. Scott Walker. With a potentially contentious reelection campaign fast approaching for Gov. Walker, the Legislative Fiscal Bureau announces that the state is anticipating a $900 million surplus, thanks to much higher tax revenue and slightly lower government spending. Walker says in a statement that the money "is a sign Wisconsin's economy continues to grow and add jobs, and it's more great news for the hard-working taxpayers."
DOWN: Students at online and for-profit colleges. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that a survey of students enrolled in both online and for-profit colleges finds they have an extremely high dropout rate of 28%. Schools that are both online and for-profit reported the highest dropout rates, with 40% of students quitting in the first year. But it looks so easy in those TV ads.
