MADISON, Wisconsin – Retaining Wisconsin teachers and investing in students and public libraries were some of the many topics that State Superintendent Dr. Jill Underly focused on in her state address. education Thursday.
“In a time when things are most uncivil, we need to remember and celebrate the things that unite us. As the high school basketball team will assert, or the Blue Ribbon Elementary School which is the pride of our community, we must reflect the pride and unity that our public schools bring to our communities, our communities. families and ourselves, ”says Dr. Underly.
She also said she wants Wisconsin to be a leader in civic education and plans to have a roadmap to help Wisconsin schools and educators.
She also plans to create a literacy task force with people from all walks of life.
Dr. Underly says she is ready to work with the legislature to help bring more funding to public schools.
However, this is unlikely to happen based on Assembly Speaker Robin Vos’ response to the speech.
“The Democrats’ sole objective of putting more money into schools is not a winning strategy for our children,” Vos said in a statement. “We need to look to improve the way they are taught and why so many students struggle with the basics – reading, writing and arithmetic.”
