Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “Gov. Evers defends leaving decision on in-person classes to Wisconsin's local schools”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.

“[Republicans] didn’t criticize me when I let local school districts make decisions by themselves when they were making decisions that [Republicans] liked,” Evers said. “Now local districts are making decisions that they don’t like, so suddenly it's my problem.”
