As chairman of the Assembly Education Committee, and the father of two children who soon will attend public schools, I understand the challenges that lie ahead for our state's education system. Last week the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) made important announcements related to programs designed to make our children competitive in an increasingly global economy.
