MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) – Governor Tony Evers said he is not planning on ordering schools to start the year virtually, saying individual school districts are doing a good job thus far forming plans.
“I am extremely pleased with the conversations that school districts across the state are having,” Evers told reporters during a media briefing. “Not only with their teachers and faculty members but making sure that the community’s involved.”
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R – Juneau) said he appreciated the governor affirming his position on schools but is concerned Evers may change positions.
This from the same man who said for weeks that he didn’t have the power to pass a mask mandate, then he did it. He’s the same guy who is hiding a likely felon on his staff. He’s the same guy who said he wasn’t going to issue a lockdown order days before he did. Governor Evers is not an honest man and has earned a healthy level of skepticism.
Expect Evers to try to close the schools in a couple of weeks under the fig leaf that “something changed.”
