Former local education announces bid for top state job

Beloit’s former school district administrator is running for state superintendent. Dr. Lowell Holtz announced his candidacy Tuesday morning in Beloit. The 35-year education veteran is preaching the need for communities to take back control of their schools. Holtz cites a low graduation rate, for African-Americans, as a top concern. He says we can no longer turn our back on the thousands of children in Wisconsin who are victims of failing schools and doomed to a life of poverty and worse. He says he has a proven record as an education reformer in both rural and urban school districts.
