Holtz Runs For DPI Superintendent

Dr. Lowell Holtz says he is the only one of three candidates running for State Schools Superintendent who has been a teacher, principal and superintendent. The former Beloit Superintendent says he is all about local control. He says you have to give local control back to the communities and school districts. He says you also have to give power back to the teachers so they can teach and we’ve failed miserably over the last four years. He also believes parents should have a role in their children’s education. He says getting kids’ college and career ready is important. Holtz says there should be regional technical education centers, but that would require the State Schools Superintendent to make some rules changes. Holtz faces current State Schools Superintendent Tony Evers and former Dodgeville District Administrator John Humphries in the February 21st Primary Election. The two candidates receiving the most votes will face each other in the April 4th Election.
