Spotlight: Education bills empower parents

MADISON — Education bills passed this week in the Assembly return power and greater choice to parents while aiming to change the trajectory of Milwaukee’s failing public school system.

The bills are part of the Empowering Parents Agenda authored by Sens. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) and Roger Roth (R-Appleton) and Reps. Robert Wittke (R-Racine), Jeremy Thiesfeldt (R-Fond du Lac) and Rick Gundrum (R-Slinger). The package includes a parent’s bill of rights, universal expansion of school choice, and a restructuring of the mammoth and chronically failing Milwaukee Public Schools.

“Our agenda puts parents and kids first,” Darling said, “We are going to increase transparency and accountability while giving parents real options for their children’s education.”

  • If the kids commit a crime, then it is the parents fault and they are made to pay the price. But the teachers think they should be the ones to rule over what and how our kids should be taught??? Something is wrong with this picture! The repub’s are right….Parents should have the right to school choice. Let the public schools close and let the powerful teachers union without an income.
