Wisconsin is advancing education reforms to ensure every child graduates ready for further education and the workplace.

State Superintendent Tony Evers has set these target goals to achieve by 2017:

  • Further increase graduation rate from 85.7 percent to 92 percent.
  • Close graduation and career and college readiness gaps.
  • Adopt the Fair Funding for Our Future plan to make school finance more equitable and transparent.

To achieve these goals and advance education for all students, we must focus around four simple, but powerful areas:


Standards and Instruction: What and how should kids learn?


Assessments and Data Systems: How do we know if they learned it?


School and Educator Effectiveness: How do we ensure kids have highly effective teachers and schools?


School Finance Reform: How should we pay for schools?
