And influential former GOP leaders are suiting up to lobby for Walker’s plan to make more public school districts offer a voucher option, in which parents can get state funds to help send their children to private schools.

Walker and privatization advocates have Madison “in their cross-hairs,” blogs School Board member Ed Hughes, who sounds livid that the governor actually admits tailoring the plan to those places where he says parents are asking for it. The distortion of student performance data to paint public schools as “wastelands” is threatening the welfare of the Madison School District and its 27,000 students, Hughes says.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers told the Joint Finance Committee at a budget briefing Thursday that school report cards being used for the first time this year “aren’t ready for prime time.” Tying report cards to voucher expansion, as Walker proposes, would undermine bipartisan school reform efforts underway, Evers said.
