Spring Primary – Tuesday, February 21, 2017
Spring General Election – Tuesday, April 4, 2017
WI State Superintendent
Dr. Tony Evers
The recommendation of Dr. Evers comes after candidate interviews, advancement by the WEAC Political Action Committee and member feedback. WEAC will begin sharing information about our recommended candidate with members in advance of the February 21 spring primary election.
In making its recommendation, the Board considered Dr. Evers’ strong Wisconsin Public Schools record. Under his leadership of the Department of Public Instruction, Dr. Evers has introduced solid solutions for school funding, promoted public schools for their role in providing opportunities to all children, and opened a larger role for educators and parents in state education decisions.
“Dr. Evers is a champion of public education and every Wisconsin student,” said Ron Martin, an eighth grade teacher and WEAC President. “He respects the roles of teachers and education support professionals in every decision that impacts students, and will continue to work tirelessly to restore public schools so they can provide opportunities to all students, no matter where in the state they live.”
