Educate All Students: Larry Miller's Blog

October 17, 2013

Wis. Rep. Joe Sanfelippo is willing to override local control against any school district in this state.

Filed under: MPS Buildings — millerlf @ 4:30 pm

Rep. Fred Kessler asked Joe Sanfelippo yesterday at the Assembly hearing on the bill to take over MPS unused buildings how he could justify going only into MPS on their buildings? Doesn’t this violate the uniformity clause of the state constitution?

Sanfelippo said that the requirement to provide education to all children in Wisconsin appears to override the uniformity clause, that the state can go into any district in this state, one by one, and tell the districts what to do.

Here is what he said:
30 minutes into hearing (Wisconsin Eye)
“If we have a problem with any part of this state, be it Milwaukee or the smallest school district in the tiniest area of the state, if we have a problem with an educational system, its incumbent upon us to move in and make sure that those kids are getting their constitutional rights to a have a good education.”
