Governor Walker: “No reason” changes he’s championed to public education can’t be pushed nationwide
MADISON — Governor Scott Walker says in an opinion column that there’s “no reason” changes he championed to public education in Wisconsin can’t be pushed nationwide.
In the column, Walker touts the curtailing of teacher union rights he signed into law in 2011. He says the changes replaced a “broken system in Wisconsin” by doing away with protections for seniority and tenure.
He says, “we need to push big, bold reforms” and “if we can do it in Wisconsin, there is no reason we can’t push positive education reforms across the country.”
