School superintendents confused over Act 10 ruling

School superintendents across Wisconsin are confused about what to do next in the wake of Friday’s court ruling overturning Gov. Scott Walker’s law that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for school and local government employees.

Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators executive director Miles Turner said on Monday that his group was fielding a lot of questions from superintendents about what to do next.

Turner said it is “very unclear” what the ruling means. His group has not taken a position on what to advise superintendents to do because he doesn’t know yet what the right answers are.

Instead, Turner said it is putting together a panel discussion for its annual meeting on Friday that about 300 superintendents from around the state are scheduled to attend.
