Wisconsin state schools superintendent candidates are arguing for a more equitable school system, more funding and less focus on standardized testing. But the seven candidates vying for the state’s top education job differ on how to achieve those goals.
The candidates first face off in a February 16 primary. The top two then go on to the April 6 general election. The winner will succeed Carolyn Stanford Taylor, who passed on running for the office to which she was appointed by Gov. Tony Evers, who before he was elected governor led the Department of Public Instruction.
