Superintendents of Dane County area school districts are appealing to Gov. Scott Walker and legislators to back off education proposals made recently by Gov. Scott Walker, according to a letter sent Tuesday.
Nineteen superintendents' names are attached to the letter, which was sent to Walker and lawmakers on Tuesday, according to Middleton-Cross Plains School District spokesman Perry Hibner.
The adminstrators ask lawmakers to provide consistent funding for public schools and that a new school accountability system not include letter grades for schools. Walker has proposed cutting $127 million in a per pupil funding for one year of the biennium, and also called for letter grades for schools.
The superintendents also ask for one state test, instead of providing the option of multiple tests as Walker has proposed in his 2015-17 budget proposal.
