Wisconsin students need legislators who stand up for their public schools, teachers say
The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) is recommending Heidi Fencl for state representative in the 89th Assembly District.
“Heidi Fencl believes every child should have the same opportunity for success, no matter where they live or what their family circumstances,” said Ron Martin, an Eau Claire eighth grade teacher and WEAC president. “She shares the values of public school educators.”
“Heidi Fencl knows decisions by the State Assembly impact students in the 89th Assembly District,” Martin said. “She will work with educators and residents to support neighborhood public schools.”
In making their recommendations for the state Legislature, WEAC members focused on areas including support for public schools, giving employees a voice in school decisions and professional respect for the role educators have in keeping our communities strong.
