MADISON — Forty-seven out of 63 GOP members of the Wisconsin Assembly have co-signed a letter delivered to school district superintendents across the state that calls on districts to have in-person schooling this fall despite the pandemic. 

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, has indicated that he would not attempt to force any school districts to have in-person classes, preferring to let local districts make decisions for themselves, but the legislative leader and his fellow Republicans have continued pushing for in-person options to be offered rather than exclusively virtual learning this year.
Adam King, a Vos staffer, said in an email to The Journal Times that “Speaker Vos believes every district should do what is best for their students but supports in-person learning ... This letter offered ideas and continued a conversation that Speaker Vos and local superintendents were having throughout the pandemic.”
