With the Republicans firmly in control of both houses of the Wisconsin legislature and the Governor’s office, the 2015 legislative session has started, and it already figures to be an active and controversial session. First on the docket in the Assembly is AB-1, dubbed the “School Accountability Bill, introduced by Representatives Jeremy Thiesfeld from Fond du Lac and Jessie Rodriguez of Franklin. The Bill would establish a 13-member statewide board that would review the academic performance of schools across the state and decide penalties, including elimination of state aid or conversion to charter schools for schools that fail to perform to predetermined standards. Representative Sondy Pope, from Cross Plains is the ranking Democrat on the Assembly Education Committee. She joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on January 12, 2015.
