Wisconsin educators tell lawmakers about reopening schools
MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin lawmakers have heard from educators about how to safely reopen schools during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Assembly’s Education Committee met with eight groups of educators on Wednesday. WTMJ-TV reports much of the conversation focused on an 87-page called “Education Forward.” The document was drafted by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and offers extensive guidance on re-opening schools during the pandemic.
A lot of unknowns remain as education leaders look ahead to the 2020-2021 school year. Leaders discussed everything from the future of fall sports to the different types of instruction that may be necessary as COVID-19 continues to affect communities.
Gov. Tony Evers closed schools in March as the coronavirus pandemic struck Wisconsin.
