DPI chief Tony Evers says there are "no more excuses" for private schools that receive taxpayer funds.

State schools Superintendent Tony Evers says private schools that accept taxpayer funds must be part  of a statewide accountability system. A proposal pending in the state legislature to do that, is getting resistance from some private schools because of the power that would be granted to Evers' office. Tony Evers delivered his "state of education" address in Madison yesterday.  Evers also said he favors Wisconsin's use of the common core curriculum and says it sets higher standards than ever before.
