MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The two candidates for Wisconsin public school superintendent will debate each other on Wednesday.
Incumbent Tony Evers and state Assembly Republican Don Pridemore of Hartford will discuss the issues at a meeting of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards in Madison.
Voters will make their choice three weeks from Tuesday.
The race has not attracted very much public attention – even though Republican Governor Scott Walker has proposed a large expansion of private school vouchers, and no increase in state aid for public schools.
Pridemore has come out in support of the voucher expansion.
Evers says the state needs more public school funding – and Republican Senate leaders say they’re working a plan to provide some type of increase.
