“Wisconsinites deserve a governor who is unafraid to support higher education.”

EAU CLAIRE – Dana Wachs responded to a mandate approved today by the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents that would require universities to report faculty teaching loads and to pay faculty based on the number of hours spent on classroom time:

“This is a completely unnecessary overreach by Gov. Walker into Wisconsin’s universities. Faculty already report their workload to university administrators, which includes teaching hours, office hours, advising hours, research, and time spent on committees. Walker’s teaching load reporting requirement would ignore the valuable work professors do outside the classroom. We need to respect and value our university faculty. Gov. Walker wants to micromanage them.

“Wisconsinites deserve a governor who is unafraid to support higher education.”
