State Schools Superintendent Candidates Disucss Issues On WBEV

(Madison) The candidates for State Superintendent of Public Instruction were our guests this week on WBEV’s Community Comment. The office is officially nonpartisan, but Republicans including former Governor Scott Walker, are supportive of former Brown Deer Superintendent Deb Kerr. Pecatonica Superintendent Jill Underly has the backing of Democrats, including former Governor Jim Doyle. The winner succeeds Carolyn Stanford Taylor. She took the post in 2019 when former superintendent Tony Evers was elected governor but declined to run for a full term. You can find our interviews with both candidates below.
