John Hauser, who stepped down as a long-time member of the Sturgeon Bay Board of Education, says finances continue to be the biggest challenge facing schools. Having served 20 years on the Sturgeon Bay School Board including a term as president, Hauser stepped down last month after taking a new job in the Milwaukee area. He says Sturgeon Bay schools are like others that are trying to do more with less.
Hauser says he would give the state legislature a “C” for a grade on their current education policies. He adds the average is not good enough and more has to be done for schools at the state level. Mike Stephani was selected as Hauser’s replacement this week on the nine person Sturgeon Bay school board.
