Top Students, Saved Seats?

The plan to guarantee seats at UW schools to top-performing Wisconsin students is up for a vote at the Capitol today.

The proposal would automatically give a spot at any University of Wisconsin school, including UW Madison, to kids who either graduate in the top five percent of their class, or score in the top five percent on the ACT in Wisconsin. The goal, supporters say, is to keep Wisconsin’s best and brightest in the state. There is some pushback, including from the university, which isn’t sold on the idea of guaranteeing spots to anyone.
