Wisconsin voters again expressed their strong support for public schools Tuesday by overwhelmingly re-electing State Superintendent Tony Evers and passing school referendums by large majorities.
“As they have done many times before, Wisconsin residents on Tuesday sent a strong message that they want quality public education for their children,” said WEAC President Ron Martin. “They not only re-elected public school advocate Tony Evers by a large majority, they rejected the policies of his opponent, who supported expansion of private school charters and vouchers at the expense of public schools. And their support for local school referendums throughout the state adds an exclamation mark to their statement that they love their public schools.”
