MADISON — The Evers camp has put out an ad to credential him as an education expert who knows what’s best for kids. The ad makes several claims about Evers’ education record we will check against the facts.
Claim 1: Tony Evers has Taken Wisconsin Schools into the Top 10 in the U.S.
The ad repeats a brag Evers has been making for months. The top 10 ranking issued by US News, shows Wisconsin’s rank improved 10 places since the 2018 list. Evers has been taking credit for the improvement although the current ranking uses data largely from the years when Scott Walker was governor, and the lower 2018 ranking was after nearly a decade of Evers’ leadership as DPI Superintendent.
