Head of education in Wisconsin has competition for the top job


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The head of education in Wisconsin has competition for the top job.  Republican lawmaker Don Pridemore went around the state Monday announcing his bid for DPI Superintendent. 

The Department of Public Instruction Superintendent is a non-partisan office elected every four years.  Tony Evers has held the job since 2009.  Monday, Pridemore said he would take a common sense and conservative approach. 

"I've spent the last eight years of my working life in the state assembly, where I've witnessed the leaders of our schools becoming frustrated with too many programs, too many mandates and too many interests groups, all at the expense of our kids," says, State Superintendent Candidate, Rep. Don Pridemore.

WQOW News 18 asked him about his platform, and he said he's still forming it.  Evers says he'll run again.  The election is in April.
