MADISON — State Superintendent Dr. Jill Underly today released the following statement regarding the resignation of the Milwaukee Public Schools superintendent.
“My goal, and the Department of Public Instruction's goal, is to make sure all kids have everything they need to succeed. My team continues to work with Milwaukee Public Schools to help solve this immediate challenge. We will continue to engage with them on a daily basis.
“In Wisconsin's system of local control, elected school boards make decisions about district superintendent staffing.
