[Madison, Wis.] – Today, the John Humphries for State Superintendent of Public Instruction campaign released the following statement on the United State’s Senate confirmation of Secretary Betsy DeVos:
“We congratulate Besty DeVos on her confirmation as Secretary of Education. Ms. DeVos has a great opportunity to help schools across the nation by reducing regulatory burdens that take the focus from students and teachers. She can also support states like Wisconsin by providing additional support for school choice while leaving it to states to focus on results and accountability for all schools.”
John Humphries is a candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Over the past two decades, John has effectively served in public schools across the state, as well as in the Department of Public Instruction. In his nearly twenty years in Wisconsin education, he has worked in small rural school districts (La Farge and Dodgeville), one of the wealthiest (Middleton-Cross Plains), and the district with the highest poverty rate (Beloit).
