Wisconsin Governor-Elect Tony Evers has selected his replacement as Schools Superintendent.
On Thursday, Evers announced his plans to appoint Carolyn Stanford Taylor, who is the current Assistant Schools Superintendent. Stanford Taylor would become Wisconsin’s first black State Superintendent. Stanford Taylor currently oversees the state’s Special Education and student wellness teams, as well as schools for the blind and deaf.
Stanford Taylor will serve the remainder of Evers’s term as Superintendent, which ends in 2021. She will then be able to run for election to serve another term.
