Voucher Advocate Loses Big in Wisconsin

A pro-voucher candidate was soundly rejected in the race for Superintendent of Public Instruction in Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:

Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers sailed into a third term on Tuesday, easily defeating challenger Lowell Holtz to hang on to his post as the state’s top educator.

 With most of the votes counted, Evers led with 70% to 30% for Holtz.
The vote represents a reject of the Holtz agenda, which included an expansion of vouchers in the state. Instead, the paper reports:
The victory positions Evers to proceed with an agenda that calls for increasing public school funding by more than $700 million. And it appears to be a rejection of Holtz’s proposals to abandon the Common Core standards and expand taxpayer funded vouchers for private schools.
