John Humphries is a candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
“I applaud Governor Walker‘s commitment to ensuring children in rural areas have access to the resources they need. As Superintendent, I will work with the governor and legislature to ensure all children—no matter where in the state they happen live—have great teachers, safe schools, and the most effective learning tools.”
John Humphries is a candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Over the past two decades, John has effectively served in public schools across the state, as well as in the Department of Public Instruction.
