WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Wausau's teachers union has voted in favor of a 'no confidence' resolution involving superintendent Steven Murley. Union rank-and-file took the vote last weekend.
The Wausau Education Association released a statement last night saying the vote reflects "the superintendent's ability to lead, the overall school climate, and long-range academic planning."
The teachers union had criticized Murley last month over a school budget that assumed large numbers of teacher retirements. Some of those positions would remain unfilled. Others will be replaced with newer, lower-paid teachers.
The statement from the W-E-A says teacher morale is low, and that some of their concerns date back to 2008 and haven't been addressed by the board of education.
There's been no comment from Murley or from the school board.
