Milwaukee charter schools performed better than public schools on ACT, report shows

A report published Wednesday by the libertarian Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty found that charter schools in the Milwaukee area outperformed their public counterparts. The study specifically compared 2016 ACT and Forward Exam – the successor to the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam – scores and controlled for different factors in student populations such as poverty levels, race and number of non-native English speakers. “This matters for parents. It’s not about building one sector up or tearing another down,” said the author of the report, Will Flanders.

Walker expressed support Wednesday for a bill that would require candidates to lose by one percentage point to in order to request a recount.

Walker supports bill that would limit candidates’ ability to request vote recounts

Gov. Scott Walker expressed support for a bill introduced Tuesday by Republican legislators that would limit state and local candidate’s ability to call for an election recount. The bill requires candidates to be “aggrieved,” meaning they would have to lose within one percent of the winner’s vote total in an election with at least 4,000 votes, according to the Associated Press.
