- Republicans say Wisconsin state Superintendent Tony Evers is not fairly applying the law covering when a teacher's license is revoked.
Republicans have criticized Evers's decision not to revoke the license of a Middleton middle school teacher in 2014 fired for viewing emails that included images of naked women. An arbitrator found no students were in the classroom when the teacher saw the emails.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that in 2008, when Evers was deputy state superintendent, the Department of Public Instruction revoked the license of an Amery teacher for looking at pornography on his work computer when students were in the classroom.
Republicans say that case shows Evers should have revoked the license of the Middleton teacher.
But DPI spokesman Tom McCarthy says the 2008 ruling was different because the misconduct was shown to have affected students.
