Page Turns On WI Reading Plan

Wisconsin lawmakers are looking to okay a sweeping change to how kids in the state are taught how to read. 

The State Assembly is set to vote today on a proposal that would go back to teaching phonics as the basis for reading.  The plan would spend 50-million dollars to re-teach teachers in the state, and focus on making sure kids can read at grade level by the end of the third grade. 

Governor Evers has promised a veto based on some of the grade level language in the plan.
