Students Talk Tuition

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) University of Wisconsin students are asking legislators to cap tuition increases. Students from 20 of the UW campuses around Wisconsin held a Capitol news conference Monday calling for a tuition cap. They say they don't want tuition to increase more than 3 or 4 percent in the new academic year starting this fall.

Gov. Scott Walker announced last week he will invest $181 million funding for the UW System. But he also wants to remove the current mandatory 5.5 percent cap on tuition and fees, leaving it to the Board of Regents to set tuition.

UW spokesman David Giroux calls Walker's budget sets the stage for a modest tuition increase. Giroux says the university will decide on the exact amount of increase by a vote in the summer.

Prison On Lockdown

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Wisconsin prison has gone into what authorities are calling a routine lockdown. Waupun Correctional Institution Warden Bill Pollard said in a statement Monday all activities at the prison, including visits, have been canceled for at least a week. Pollard says authorities have been planning the lockdown for several months so they can conduct searches for contraband such as cellphones, illegal drugs, tobacco and weapons.

He says the prison will gradually return to normal operations after the searches are complete.

Public information officials with the state Corrections Department didn't immediately return telephone messages seeking more details.

Teachers Under Minnesota Microscope

Written by

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) New legislation would demand that Minnesota school administrators avoid putting children in classrooms led by teachers deemed unsatisfactory if they had one the previous year. The bill introduced Monday by three Democratic state senators and one Republican is the latest attempt to make teacher effectiveness a bigger part of school decisions. If passed, the law wouldn't take effect until the 2016-17 academic year.

The bill builds off an existing teacher evaluation process. Advocates argue that students in classrooms led by ineffective teachers tend to fall further behind their peers, so helping them avoid multiple subpar teachers is critical.

Having Democrats as authors could help the bill's chances, but teacher effectiveness measures usually face difficult legislative terrain. The chief sponsor is freshman Democratic Sen. Susan Kent of Woodbury.
