Governor Evers Does Not Plan to Mandate Virtual Instruction

A Wisconsin lawmaker said Monday he believes Governor Tony Evers is planning on mandating all schools begin the year with virtual learning in the fall. The possibility of a virtual learning mandate was brought forward by Republican Senator Steve Nass of Whitewater. TMJ4 News talked with Governor Evers who answered the question directly.

Governor Evers cleared the air. He has no plans to mandate all Wisconsin schools go virtual.

“There’s no secret plan out there,” Governor Evers said.

In fact, the governor said he believes any decision on how a school should reopen should be made at the local level for good reason, as every region is seeing a different prevalence of the virus, and every district varies in enrollment.
