Evers set to give "State of Education" on Thursday

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- It's time to take a look at how Wisconsin schools are doing overall and what areas need improvement. Wisconsin state Superintendent Tony Evers is set to deliver his annual "State of Education" address on Thursday at the state Capitol.

The speech comes as Evers is pushing a plan in the Legislature to require every high school student in the state to take the ACT college entrance exam during their junior year.

Evers unveiled that proposal earlier this month. A number of other new tests would also be given, replacing the Wisconsin Knowledge Concepts Examination, designed to help prepare students for college or the workforce.

Evers has also pushed a number of other reforms in concert with Governor Walker. Last month Walker praised Evers' creation of a new license that will allow people with experience in the private sector to teach in public schools.
