Tony Evers' 2010 State of Education Address
Excerpt from closing section:
Last year in this address I said, “Expect more to come.” More has come. More will come. I will continue to work for our students and their parents and educators and librarians. We have made real strides this year to ensure Wisconsin’s schools stay strong and every child is a graduate. And while the past two years have hit many hard, our schools and public libraries have responded to be centers for recovery and centers for compassion and caring. Every day our educators and public librarians are there for our kids and our communities.
Teaching, learning, and improving – each of these – making our strong schools and libraries better – is about hard steady work. It cannot fall victim to fads and political turmoil. We know that real, serious change takes time and must be done right. We will get it right and support our parents and educators as they raise and teach our next generation of leaders and innovators. We have set ambitious goals, and we will need your support to achieve them. Let’s work for our kids and their parents, our educators, and for Wisconsin’s future.
