Wisconsin’s governor says it’s not his job to decide which of the state’s schools open, or when.
Gov. Tony Evers said during an online question and answer session with WisPolitics on Tuesday that he doesn’t have the power to order local schools to return to in-person classes.
“I’ve let the locals take care of that,” Evers said. “It’s not the state’s position to determine whether something can be mitigated or not.”
The governor did give himself one exemption, however, by which he meant his statewide mask orders.
