Evers says he's inclined to run for second term
Wisconsin state schools superintendent Tony Evers says he is inclined to run for a second term, but has not yet made a final decision.
The 60-year-old Evers was first elected to the nonpartisan position as state superintendent of public instruction in April 2009. He would be up for re-election in April 2013.
Evers has found himself at the forefront of major issues during his term. Last year he opposed Gov. Scott Walker's proposal taking nearly all collective bargaining rights away from teachers.
But Evers has also worked closely with the Republican governor on other measures, including a new accountability system for teachers and schools.
Evers is also overseeing the transition into a new statewide testing system and the end of adherence to the federal No Child Left Behind law.
