MADISON (WKOW) – State superintendent Tony Evers will deliver his annual State of Education address on Thursday.
Evers will talk about the status of education in Wisconsin and present awards to outstanding teachers.
The speech comes in the middle of some big changes for Wisconsin's public school system. So far in 2012, the voucher program has given students the opportunity to attend private schools using a taxpayer funded subsidy and expanded to 25 schools outside of Milwaukee and Racine. Now the Legislature is debating ways to include data from those voucher schools into report cards to measure performance.
The debate over whether Wisconsin schools should use the national Common Core curriculum is also heating up, with Governor Scott Walker saying he believes the state can implement higher standards.
