Governor Evers Vetoes Bill Regarding How Schools Address Children Who Struggle to Read

Monday, November 8th, 2021 -- 12:00 PM

(Bob Hague, WRN) Governor Tony Evers has vetoed a bill that would have changed how Wisconsin schools address young students struggling to read.

The legislation would have required schools to do additional testing, and create personalized reading plans. Opponents noted the bill provided no additional funding.

In his veto message, Evers noted that, and said he objected to “fundamentally overhauling” literacy instruction without evidence that more testing is the best approach. The bill’s Republican authors had noted that statewide K-12 reading abilities have consistently rated below proficient.
