Wisconsin education plan wins approval over objections 'Very strong' Democratic sentiment to oppose GOP budget bill
MADISON — Wisconsin's education department says the state's required school improvement plan has won federal approval, despite objections from Gov. Scott Walker and conservatives that it wasn't innovative enough. Wisconsin state Superintendent Tony Evers said Wednesday that the plan approved by the U.S. Department of Education "is an opportunity to focus on local strategies to close opportunity and achievement gaps for all kids." WASHINGTON — Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said Wednesday there's "very, very strong" sentiment among Democrats in the chamber to oppose GOP-drafted legislation to keep the government's doors open, comments that could indicate the chances are increasing that the government could shut down at midnight Friday night.
