No one has been a bigger promoter of public schools during the race for state school superintendent than Jill Underly.
That was, no doubt, a large part of the reason that Underly, the Pecatonica school superintendent, has won the endorsement of state and local teachers unions.
But back when it was her decision to send her two children to school when she lived in Madison, Underly went private.
Her campaign has confirmed that she chose to send her kids to St. James Catholic School in Madison during the 2013-’14 and 2014-’15 terms rather than Leopold Elementary, the low-performing neighborhood school in Fitchburg.
