Wisconsin college students could save time and money under a new bill heading to Governor Scott Walker’s desk. Senate Bill 407, which was passed by the Assembly earlier this week, will allow students taking college-level courses in high school and can show they have mastered the material get the credit they deserve. Rep. Joel Kitchens asked Sturgeon Bay Teacher Barry Mellen and two Clipper alums last December to testify in favor of the bill and says this will help keep college affordable for students.
Also the Vice Chair of the Assembly Committee on Education, Rep. Kitchens says their work continues on addressing the school funding formula. Their panel will host their first public forum on the topic February 2 in Milwaukee.
