Teachers Union Tony Evers Flunks Again
Evers Vetoes Bipartisan Literacy Bill That Would Have Supported “At-Risk” Readers, Informed Parents
[Madison, WI] – Today, failed “education governor” Tony Evers attempted to quietly veto a bipartisan education bill. Senate Bill 454 would have helped educators identify and serve students who are struggling to read, while providing more information to parents.
Evers’ parents-last approach won’t resonate with Wisconsin voters. In a state that Joe Biden won by ten points, Virginia this week rejected fellow teachers union crony Terry McAuliffe, whose comment that he “[doesn’t] think parents should be telling schools what they should teach” was the final nail in the coffin in his loss to Republican Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin.
“Tony Evers claims to care about kids, but he refused to help reopen schools, he’s blocking bipartisan bills, and he’s presenting zero solutions to solve the education problems he helped create,” said Republican Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Anna Kelly. “Evers’ teachers union first, students-last approach is failing a generation of kids.”
