Walker, Evers Working On New Assessment Plan

7/11/11 – Political foes Scott Walker and Tony Evers are working together to create a new way to hold Wisconsin’s public schools accountable. Governor Walker and state education superintendent Evers agree the federal No Child Left Behind law isn’t working. The two say they had to find common ground. They plan to create a team of educators to develop the new accountability system, with discussions starting this fall and a final version ready to go by next spring. The plan is to include private schools this time. All sides agree political differences need to be set aside to benefit Wisconsin students.
