FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MADISON – Following is the statement from United Wisconsin Executive Director Lisa Subeck in response to yesterday’s victory by Tony Evers in the race for State Superintendent of the Department of Public Instruction.
“Congratulations to Tony Evers on his victory in yesterday’s election. Evers ran on a pro-public education platform, and his victory sends a clear message that the voters of Wisconsin reject Governor Walker’s push to sink more public money into unaccountable private vouchers schools.
“With the resounding defeat of pro-voucher candidate and GOP state representative Don Pridemore, the message to Scott Walker is clear. Walker should end his ideological march to expand his private school voucher program and restore funding to Wisconsin’s public schools.”
