Wednesday on Lake Effect: Surviving COVID-19, Wisconsin School Budgets, U.S. Freedom & Democracy

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

We have a first hand account of what it’s like to be a COVID-19 survivor in Milwaukee. Then, Wisconsin school districts are starting to craft their budgets for the upcoming year. We look at that process during this pandemic. Plus, we talk about how the coronavirus has reawakened some longstanding debates on the nature of our government.
