3-11-15 report cards-assembly republicans moving ahead with sanctions for schools

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly could vote as early as next week on a bill that would impose sanctions on failing Wisconsin public schools.  Assembly Education Committee Chairman Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt released the latest proposal Tuesday and planned to vote on it Thursday. The full Assembly could take it up March 17.  The latest proposal would impose sanctions on public schools that receive a failing grade for at least six years starting with the 2016-2017 academic year.  At that point, the school board would be required to either convert the public school into a charter school, fire the principal and reorganize the school or contract with an outside entity to take over the school.  Private schools with fewer than 20 students receiving taxpayer-funded vouchers would be exempt.
