A new school year is upon Wisconsin families, but as many parents already know, students are continuing to struggle since the pandemic arrived in 2020. The education establishment and some politicians want to gaslight families into believing that problems like learning loss and chronic absenteeism have melted away. An eye-popping list from U.S. News and World Report ranked the Badger State K-12 system as the 8th best in the country. But this rosy picture contradicts other key indicators that Wisconsin students are falling behind.
In a new policy brief, “The State of Wisconsin Education,” WILL Research Director, Dr. Will Flanders takes a candid look at how Wisconsin’s K-12 system is really doing. Join Dr. Flanders and WILL’s Director of Education Policy, Libby Sobic for a presentation and discussion on his findings. Also learn about how to utilize WILL’s School Data Dashboard to see how your local schools compare to others. Finally, Libby will touch on some exciting developments related to WILL’s “Restoring American Education” initiative and how parents can be better engaged.
