MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he is concerned the Legislature will adjourn without reaching a deal on a school accountability bill.
The Senate has passed a bill that requires all schools receiving public money to make a variety of test scores and other data public so performance can be compared. The Assembly is scheduled to vote on a more expansive proposal Thursday that sets in motion sanctions against poor performing schools.
Walker said Wednesday he hoped that lawmakers could reach a deal and pass something that both chambers can agree to. Bills must pass both the Senate and Assembly in identical form before they go to Walker.
Thursday is the Assembly's final day in session. The Senate is returning April 1, but leaders have said they don't support the Assembly bill.
