Goff speaks with ‘Central Time’ about contest for superintendent of public instruction

February 25, 2017

UW-Madison’s Peter Goff recently appeared on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Central Time” program to talk about the race for superintendent of public instruction in the state.

Peter Goff
Incumbent state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers easily won the primary election on Feb. 14, earning the right to defend his position in the April 4 election against voucher advocate Lowell Holtz, a retired Whitnall School District superintendent.

Goff is an assistant professor with the School of Education's Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis who is an expert on K-12 educational policy, leadership evaluation and development, and hiring and selection practices.

Goff spoke about a range of topics, including school funding and how the push from conservatives to expand voucher and school choice initiatives in Wisconsin has made education a more political and partisan topic than it was in the past.

To learn much more about this important and timely topic, listen to an archive of Goff’s 13-minute "Central Time" segment on this WPR.org web page.
