Newsmakers: DPI Superintendent Jill Underly and The State of Wisconsin Schools
On February 21, 2022, Newsmakers host Lisa Pugh sat down with Wisconsin Dept. of Public Instruction (DPI) Superintendent Jill Underly to discuss the past year and what’s ahead. Underly is coming up on her one-year anniversary in office as Superintendent and has been at the helm during one of the most challenging years in the history of Wisconsin public schools. From overseeing the disbursement to schools of millions in federal COVID relief dollars, to facing criticism about classroom restrictions and falling test scores, she remains steadfast in her demand for more funding and support for public schools.
