Senate Leader Fitzgerald's View On School Sanctions

Wisconsin state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says there is "no appetite" among Senate Republicans to pass a bill that imposes sanctions on poor performing public or private schools with voucher students.

Fitzgerald said the Senate will take up a narrow school accountability bill that focuses on collecting and reporting data from the schools.
An earlier version of the bill proposed closing failing public schools or forcing them to become charters. It also proposed to bar poor-performing voucher schools from accepting new voucher students.

Fitzgerald says work is still being done on the bill and he expects the Senate to pass something later this year.
Assembly Republicans are working on a different version.
