MADISON - The chairman of the Assembly Education Committee says it appears unlikely that a deal can be reached with the state Senate to pass a school accountability bill this session.
Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt commented Wednesday after a Senate committee scheduled a vote on its version of the proposal that doesn't include sanctions for failing schools. That is something Thiesfeldt and other Assembly Republicans have demanded they wanted included in the bill.
Thiesfeldt says he doesn't see Republicans in the Senate ever compromising with Assembly Republicans to reach a deal. He says the Legislature may decide to wait and see what direction comes from Congress.
