Campaign Statement on Creation of State Board of Education
"We do not need more bureaucracy or more centralized control," said Amanda Brink.
“As State Superintendent, Tony Evers convenes and participates in dozens of advisory councils across our state. Consisting of over 600 Wisconsinites, they regularly provide new ideas and feedback from local communities and the schools they represent. These councils, combined with Tony’s school visits, help shape the policies implemented at DPI. Ensuring kids are front and center of our public education system is Tony’s priority.
We do not need more bureaucracy or more centralized control. The state legislature passes education laws, while the State Superintendent is directly accountable to the citizens. Our Founders debated this at length when writing our Constitution, and they wisely created an independent State Superintendent for a reason.”

Evers has also already received the endorsement of former US Senator Herb Kohl, former Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton, former Rep. Steve Kagen MD, and nearly a dozen current and former legislators.
The proposal is expected to cost less than $20 million a year.
