Public schools will still be under the watchful eye of a professional, Superintendent Tony Evers, thank god.
With two different standards, you can forget about accountability. Seriously, what's to compare?
Sen. Paul Farrow: "As much as everyone wants to say it's a apple to apples holding things equally accountable, it can't be done. There are three separate pieces, and so we're looking at a way we can hold each of the sectors accountable the way they should be."Complete fiction and a giveaway to voucher interests and big money, who really don't want real accountability.
This also establishes 2 parallel school systems. Two. If the senate agrees to go along with the assembly's "optional test" for voucher schools, then comparisons are out the window. And with rising voucher outlays every year (voucher advocates are working on getting full student tuition), with no way to tell whether the two privates system are failing, public education will die a slow funding death.
Note: Walker will allow Common Core as a way to continue to lift scores, making himself look good, while privatization sinks scores on the other end. This is shameless government at its GOP worst. WKOW:
