Former Asst Sec'y of Ed, Dr Ravitch,posted a strong endorsement of Kelda Roys (D) for Governor of Wisconsin. The leading candidate in the race is Tony Evers, who is currently State Superintendent of Education, but he is NOT a strong supporter of education-- in fact, he has made teachers’ lives worse during his tenure in office. Teachers are deeply demoralized by the combination of Governor Walker and State Chief Evers’ policies. Tony Evers’ record on education is very bad, .Excessive testing, educator effectiveness bunk, continued accountability ( the 'reform' word for teachers are to blame for the achievement gap), expansion of non-public charter schools, and a top down system that denies teachers professional autonomy0. The candidate to take on Walker will not win without the support of the teaching profession. Assuming teachers will support Tony is rejecting their moral compass."
