3-21-14 assembly passes limited school accountability bill

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin state Assembly has passed a limited school accountability bill with nearly no debate.  The voice vote Thursday came after conservative Assembly Republicans dropped their widely panned plan to impose sanctions on failing schools. The bill that passed has no sanctions and is identical to what earlier passed the Senate.  The bill now heads to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature. Walker, who was involved with trying to come up with a more expansive bill, has indicated he would sign the measure that passed.  No deal could be reached on the GOP's bill that included sanctions. Public school advocates as well as school choice supporters all opposed it.
