State superintendent Tony Evers says there are "no more excuses" for private schools that accept taxpayer-funded voucher students.
Evers said in his annual address about the state of education in Wisconsin that those private schools must be a part of the state's accountability system. A proposal in the Legislature to do just that has run into opposition from private schools, in part because of the power it gives Evers and the Department of Public Instruction.
Evers also is using his speech delivered in the Capitol to defend Wisconsin's use of the Common Core curriculum, calling it "world class" and set higher expectations than ever before. Evers says the state owes it to students not to reverse course and "pull the rug out" from under them.
