Wisconsin Public Education Network’s Summer Summit held in La Crosse

Governor Evers visits Central High School

Education Leaders from all over the state were discussing “What’s Best For Kids” in an annual summit in La Crosse on Monday.

Governor Tony Evers and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Carolyn Stanford Taylor, spoke at Central High School for the Wisconsin Public Education Network’s Summer Summit.

The summit included special presentations from La Crosse school district professionals, student performances, and a silent auction.

This year’s theme was “What’s Best For Kids”, covering topics from school finance to race, inclusion, and equality.

Executive Director of the Wisconsin Public Education Network said, “We know what’s best for kids is making sure that all of our schools have the resources they need to meet their needs. That means the funding from state and local governments that they need, the best educators, but also the supports in terms of what kind of programs districts can offer, and making sure that we’re meeting the needs of all learners.”

This was the 5th annual Education Summit. Each year it’s hosted by a different district to highlight local concerns and celebrate local successes.
