UW-Madison students may see a familiar face at the front of the classroom next spring as former Governor Jim Doyle announced Nov. 24 that he will teach a state policy course.

The state’s 44th governor will teach his class within the La Follette School of Public Affairs, according to a university release.

Doyle said in the release he will aim to focus the course on a handful of state-policy topics the world faces today, such as health care, higher education and job creation.

“I plan to cover not only the major substantive issues involved, but also the practical political considerations,” Doyle said in the release. “How do the politics line up? What are the interest groups involved? What are the budgetary choices? How, if at all, does it play out as a campaign issue? I hope that the students can get some sense of how you actually try to implement policy in a very difficult political climate.”
